"father, i'd like to thank you
for the seed that you gave on the day of my conception
for the gift of solitude, and knowing that after being left once
that there's alway's another willing to leave me.
i thank you also for my apathy.
you've given your son the strength to never be hurt.
mother, i'd like to thank you
for the egg that you gave and for leaving when we were young
the day you spent with me when i was six.
the two days when i was seven.
the month when i was nine.
and every loving momnent and increasing period of time as i aged
and became more capable of taking care of myself.
i thank you for the ability of being alright with being alone.
brother, i'd like to thank you.
for the clear path that you trod.
you have my appreciation for always showing me
the life not to lead.
daughter, i'd like to thank you.
for all i've been left without.
companionship, you're always in my dreams and just desipating as my arms close.
love, you're always in my heart i just wish i could see you in my eyes.
strength, you're the foundation of my life and the only thing that has kept me standing strong in this life of mine.
now if only you were in it."
