The Fatherless Children

She has become the father of a fatherless boy
Manning him up for a world that is absent of real men
Men planting seeds in a world of fatherless children
Leaving women picking up the pieces of shattered hearts
Wiping away tears of hurt and devastation
Telling her children that mommy will always love them
that mommy will always be there to pick up the pieces of a shattered identity
not quite understanding why mommy is also father
Why mommy is the father that they never had
Why mommy is the hero that father could never be
Why mommy is their strain of hope in a cold world when father was gone
Why mommy will always be the one to keep them going even as a clan of fatherless children
