It is Unusual


Looks as if it happened
a short while ago
fresh in mind
vivid in colour.

Reminiscing the event
I stay glued to my seat
one of a feel
I find hard to describe.

An anger unjustified
directed at a target
inappropriate leads to
a show down unexpected.

Father and daughter
get estranged. The impact
lasts for years and years
leaving a wound unhealed.

Never did they patch up.
The boundless affection
they nurtured all along is spoiled
by rivalry and manipulation.

Unfortunate to be a witness
to such destruction. Saddened
I remain stricken
by the inability to pacify.
