To my son,… [POEM]

So many things I will teach you
while hoping that the walls of my waters don’t ever breach you
And if I were to break,
that my stains should never reach you

In you I see where I began
I hope that you see in me reflection of a man
With that information,
I want you to STAND

Believe in good despite any urges or suggestion different
Where there is an option for your voice or your ear,
Listen
Position yourself to be able to try
There is no reason for you to suffer,
there is no reason FOR YOU to lie

Love because you have no reason not to
Feel because you have a feeling that you’ve got to
Share because you never want to be without
and Travel, so that you know what life is about

Remember that people are people
and that is no excuse
But instead a reason to forgive
or whichsoever you choose

How I’ve done it was my way
and I will never hide those facts
But Son learn from any if my mistakes
and to the same you will never go back

Show the world that you need them
but that on some can not you compromise
So that YOU LEAVE FOR YOUR SON
ACTIONS FOR WHICH YOU WON’T APOLOGIZE

And above all know that YOU are loved
and how much you mean,
For if everything that matters is right on the inside,
then of YOU, to the world it will be seen.

Love,
Dad.
