Sunshine Monologue 13


"Father and Son" by Lauri Cooper
For all the times you sat outside your child's mothers house because you can't see your kids.....

For all the times you took your last dollar, because she said she needed it...

For all the times you wonder where your child support went because you son doesn't have a haircut and is wearing old jeans when you pick him up

For all the times you've heard on the street you are a no good dirty trifling sperm donor....

For all the times you've stood in the court system trying to prove you do take care of your child....

For all the tears you've shed......

I want to say Happy Father's Day to THAT Father!

I also want to acknowledge all the stories of the love, admiration and protection you bestow upon your children and your families fly in the face of the picture of the Black Father and make me proud!

Taking a moment to recognize my daddy who has been deceased for 19 years now and is missed as if it were yesterday!! We are doing alright Daddy! We are doing alright!
