Dear Dad,

Saagi HemmingsApril 29, 2020

You are the one                                                    irresponsible
Person, who was always there for me              life-changing
You were my rock,                                               my role model
But now, you aren’t so amazing,                        legendary
Anymore. You have been                                    messy,
Funny, you’ve broken our                                   inspiring
Relationship. Come back, my                             amazing
Father, I want you,                                               the old you
