My hero

My hero

A Poem by Bertha
"

God will always look out for you no matter what. He has sent angels to watch over us in different descriptions; for example, parents.

"
He told me not to lie
That is why everytime i would hear him lie, my heart would skip and my mouth and eyes open a little more.
Like when he told mum and the other's at work,
That he is just there, and yet we had two or more stops to pass.
Or the times he told me he would get me a beautiful present and take me out when i pass;
When i be a good girl
I still see him better and i follow his lead and not lie


He told me not to cry any how
I shouldn't let my anger show that quick.
You need to be strong and wave past the emotions.
Don't use vain words , do not say what you'll regret
Words don't come back once they go.
You cannot correct this swords cut.
Yet he would cry everytime he and mum had an argument.
He would be so angry! Everyone, including me wouldn't get close
But he never said vain words. To me, or anyone
Even when angry and hurt.
Thats why i still imitate him! I cry alot and be sweet to everyone. Because he taught me

He taught me to pray. To love this one book above all
He said, "the beginning of wisdom, is the fear of the Lord. "
So i didn't run away from the youth groups at church
I couldn't say am not ready for prayer ever!
Never would i curse or say ill words about the preacher or elderly.
Cause he taught me
By every time he'd listen attentively in church and teach me better when going home.
The times he would get on his knees and pray to his friend Jesus, i always knew he was listening
Something good would happen afterwards
Even if it takes years
That's why i call him my heroe
He wasn't born as one but he made himself one

I think you have truly expressed the love you have for this man, your father, who taught you some of the most important lessons of life. That he did this in a way that fostered your deep love for him.

Yes - to say the least I liked this very much.
Take care - Dave

This is a beautiful heartfelt poem that shows how human nature is never black-and-white, or easy to understand. Many times parents try to teach us to do things right, even when they do not. Your poem shows very minor shortcomings in your hero, but often these shortcomings can be really horrible. But we can still learn the lessons by watching the pitfalls our loved ones fall into. I love how this writing is conversational & soooo honest (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
