(un)seen

my dad
never got to see
my name
on the spine of a book
never got to hold
his grandchildren
never got to see
whatever it is
the world became
or
how it shaped us

some days
that is
an unbearable weight
chained
around my neck
as i struggle
uphill
in every direction
with the wind
constantly
blowing in my face.
