I Never Knew My Father by Bludi Illiene

I never knew my father.
Can’t even say his name.
People say I remind them of him,
yet they also never seen his face.
It’s okay if they call me human.
I’m fine with hearing that.
I mean I’m partially human.
My unnamed father guaranteed it.
My mother made mistakes.
At least I like to think so.
To create my existence
she had to have done something
not quite right.
I never knew my father,
and that is quite alright.
He doesn’t offer me anything of value.
I’m fine not knowing his name.
