A Poem For Father
I’m writing this poem only to say
“Merry Christmas” on this day
And to give thanks and appreciation to
The person whom some is due.
I know we’re not always on the same page,
And life conversations are hard to engage.
But as time past we had once again reconnect.
Though I'm not a child I will never forget
All the things you have and not have done for me.
You opened my eyes and caused me to see,
What I must do to become the woman I am.
The world is ruthless and being timid won’t stand.
So, thank you Dad for being in my life,
Through some of my hurtles and my strife.
Though you’re not ideal and you have flaws
Doesn’t mean I love you any less only because,
People aren’t perfect and that’s rightly so.
But you do have good qualities and they often show.
So don’t doubt your skills because you’re doing right.
Just look at me and continue to fight.
