About This Episode
This poem is about the relationship between a daughter and her alcoholic father. It is a love poem of sorts for the conflicted feelings between flawed parents and children. It takes place in an intimate setting, surrounded by peers as the poem is read in collaboration with a singer and guitar. When I wrote this poem, I was inspired by my personal experience with my father and mother. However, I wrote this poem for all the children who may be able to relate to my story. The message is in the vulnerability in the piece and is open to interpretation. I want the feelings and emotions to translate. We used music along with poetry to intensify the mood and layers of the poem.
