YESTERDAY’S FATHER TODAY.


They
say as fathers we are supposed to lead by example
But
what happens when we run out of options to give an example

Like,
all she needed was for you to say
“Jenni,
make sure to brush your teeth before you go to bed.
And
John, a smelly feet is disgusting so
Always
keep your stockings clean and air your shoes to dry.
And
do not be afraid to call me daddy after I rebuke you.
And
do not always run to your mother coz
She
would never refuse you.
And
that sometimes makes me feel like a bad father”.
Today’s
father barely knows his kids.
Today’s
father celebrates a session of corporate duties and good deeds
But
never listens when his little boy reads.
Today’s
father picks up his phone more times than he
Picks
up his boy’s sweatshirt to say
“Boy,
put this on because it’s gonna get pretty cold in school today”.
So
every time he has something to say, he walks his mother’s direction.
Today’s
father knows nothing about today’s father
To
be what today’s father was taught by his own father:
To
walk the father way, live, sit, talk, and act the father way;
Because
that way, we cannot forget your teachings from the other day-
So
today’s father now knows better
[So]
He taught me and I remember how how…
How
my shoes should have equal strides with my legs when I walk.
My
hands in my pocket to
Feign
arrogance and increase my confidence when I talk.
My
both knees on the floor with my head bowed,
When
I talk to that father who decided to make me a man.
All
these words your silence spoke
These
rules on grounds you wrote.
So
I dare to call you father coz
When
I didn’t learn it was my mistake.
My
stubbornness you couldn’t take coz
While
I was awake it was sleep I faked.
All
these are the words from a man your seed did make.
[So]
Today, today’s father knows enough about today’s father
To
be what today’s father was taught by his own father
