Change I did not ask for

Came unannounced

Life forever marked

Pain cannot be pronounced

Father died from lung cancer

Gone without a trace

Anger became my name

Wore it on my face

Moved to another state

Attended a different school

Endless adjustments

No written rules

Grief is so unresolved

Years have passed

Coping is a challenging task

Barely getting by

Invisible, 2023
