The moments are already gone, but the memories won’t go. The lost souls from the forgotten don’t seem to come back.
I once had a father. Before no one knew, he just forgot. He forgot he had a son. He pretended it never happened.
I once travelled and I got lost. I walked parts of the world. I walked around many seas. I walked in some streets.
I once asked for a wish. A wish that turned into a nightmare. I wanted to have parents. I wanted the love of a family.
I once thought not to be. But escaping is never the answer. And even if wars get over the peace, there’s no reason to wish not to be.
Now, I just think only one thing. End this misery, which makes me feel incomplete. This crazy idea, the idea to be, to have my childhood back and once again be a kid. The happy kid as I never was. Time took my dream, now I’m alone as I’ve always been.
Adric Ceneri is an LGBTQ artist, poet, writer, and author. He was born in Mexico and lived there during his childhood. He was raised in the coasts of the Pacific Ocean with his parents up to the age of five, and when his parents separated, he had to endure and survive the consequences of his parents’ poor lives choices. The majority of his poetry reflects the pains and sufferings he had to endure.
