To My Son

You must go my son
go away to a future, all yours,
to a world that beckons you
with all the hopes you deserve.

You must go away, my son
before I crush you with my own irrational fears,
my anxieties and all the insecurities
too deep-rooted within me,
for me to fathom, for you to remove.

Leave me behind, my son,
put behind you the traumas you have known
of a fatherless existence
and of my world, too helpless to offer you

anything.
