Thanks, Ross. I've written the pissed-off parts quite often, but this is the first time I've written about the end. I guess I'd always seen how his behavior was painful for me--I'd never understood before it was also painful for him.
We erect monuments to our dead
But where are the stones
the writings on which say
"He beat his daughter."
"She neglected her child."
"Mostly remembered for the many molestations."
Bury the body
But never the truth
Exhume the memories
So the living can rest

[Addendum]
Stones rise up and walk
Animated epitaphs chiseled
and hammered on every
beating heart
