My Son!

My Son!

A Poem by Bidu Ibrahim

A letter to my son

My son
My world,
Life’s short
We can’t tell who’s first to go,
There’s so much you need to know
So much you wanna know
There has never been time to talk,
There will be so much to hear
Always someone ready to volunteer,
Some stories shall be painful to hear
A few snippets will fill you with pride
Depends with whom you ride
And imperfections,
I couldn’t give you heaven on earth
How could I,
You are my heaven and earth!
Your dad ain’t an angel
But he was incredible,
My son
My world, 
Don’t live your life a copy
That’s an expensive hobby,
Let the fear of God be your regulator
And the love for humanity your motivator,
Meet the world with a smile
Let humility be your ride,
Inspire love and hope
Boldly weather any storm,
Live simply, 
Real Poverty isn’t in material scarcity 
Real Poverty’s in a lack of morals and humanity!
Even though I don’t express this much
You’re the very beat that sustains my heart,
I don’t love you
I live you.
