Absent Abyss

I said goodbye to mom

In a letter

I burned it

And tossed the ash

In the river

I made amends to my father

By looking myself in the mirror

Acknowledging these scars

And promising I’d

No longer live in fear

I made peace with my past

By forgetting my past

Meaning I forgave my past

Meaning I’m free at last
