Fissures

When, I do wonder now,
Did fissures appear?
Between us both today,
Of frustration & fear.

A dream, I’ve had long,
You don’t want to see;
Is it not I who dreamt,
Where I’m the best me?

You’re just so adamant,
Just not willing to say,
I’m happy for you, dear,
Do what your heart says.

Don’t want this fissure,
Don’t want us to fight;
I know what I want too,
You’re not always right.

Let me chase my dreams,
I’ll never fly away far;
Just agree with a smile,
Daddy, the best you are.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Hmm, fissures is not good, but ups and downs is acceptable and inevitable in life, no matter how close you are with the other person. The closeness in the relationship can be determined by how you resolve them.

  4. it happens everytime, in a father-son-daughter relationship…fissures appear…as in some instances in our lives, parents expect too much, children seems not good enough with parents' expectation, but they have their own life to live, isn't it?i always do with my kids…i want them to excel, i put a high standard for them to achieve something but realize in the end that it would be fissure in our relationships!wonderful thoughts on relationships Leo!

  5. Leo, I am finally back from Asia last night. Trying to catch up! Fissures are a normal part of life and differences between free spirits. How we handle or close the fissures is the measure of our success. If we are willing the fissures can be smaller. My best, Rob.
