Whereabouts Unknown

Whereabouts unknown…
 
That was how my
Dad and his siblings
referred to my
grandfather during
the Great Depression
 
He just disappeared
and was gone for 
years only to show
up as if nothing
was wrong
 
Whereabouts unknown…
 
He left my grandmother
and a handful of
young children to
fend for themselves
during that dark time
 
Whereabouts unknown…
 
Anna Laura…
the baby of the family
died of lockjaw while
he was gone
 
Whereabouts unknown…
 
No one knows or will
say they know where
he was during 
all those years
 
Whereabouts unknown…
 
Just another of the
many secrets…
Mysteries…
that ran rampant
through my
father’s family
