Analysis and comments on Pensive and Faltering. by Walt Whitman

Comment 2 of 2, added on March 2nd, 2013 at 4:43 PM.

this article hnosetly is painful yet encouraging for me to read. my
relationship with my father is fractured and unlike you two he is still
living; i come from the side of the tracks where you have a father present
but dont have a father .i more so remember him as a sign of disaapointment
lies and negative based on how he presented himself while he lived with us
till this day now that i have my own daughter who is 5 months its hard to
raise her because i cant even began to think how to ask the questions i
have for how to raise her. the good thing is we communicate but its still
reminders of what he wasnt every now and then..its encouraging because like
you saud its plenty of good hard working men out here and who defines
family to be your real mother and father people are blessed to have other
people to fill that emptiness so thats you do know what it is to have a
father or mother or family. i take this to heart as a raise my daughter
without her dad because of issue with domestic abuse thanks for this post
gave me something to think about*hugs for you both and god bless*
