My Father in the Mirror – Poems from Ranier

I see my father in the mirror,
But with the kindest eyes.
It scares me to see that man that way,
Because that's how so many others did.

I know myself and I know
That I am the man that's in the mirror,
But I can't help seeing his haunting face
Blanketed over the kindness and love in my soul.

I am not my father.
But I wish I did not see him there anymore.
