A Letter to My Parents

I'm saddened that your came to this:
Two separate lives without a common goal.
Dad, you left without so much of a notice,
Leaving mommy with half a life, heart and soul
But still she sings her gospel songs.

Mom, your hard work doesn't go unnoticed
And I wish to give you the world-
The same world that you gave after a promise.
When I look in your eyes, i see pearls. 

Thank you for loving me
Because I know it isn't easy.

Dad, father, Vernon,
I wish I felt like your son.
