The man, like a father

If not the man

then the thought of him

if not the thought of him

then his words 

his words in your head reminding you who you are and who you ought to be. 

The voice of reason and arms of security to help you through the mountains of life.

His words ringing through my head that are the only words that make sense. The only

words that speak life into me. The only man that stays, loves, and adores.

If not the father

then the thought of a father

if not the thought of a father

Then the words of a father.

 

This poem is about: 
My family
