My Father

My Father

A Poem by WriterSki7

A poem I wrote to my dad after a heated arguement. Doubt this crap's worth reading but might as well put it up on Writerscafe since everybody seems to like the stuff so much . . .



A man of esteem, a man on the rise.

A man of hope, and of sacrifice.

A man of relationships, a man of love.

A man of heart and a man of devotion.

A Righteous man, albeit a man with fault.

A man who understands, and a man who talks.

A man of the future, yet a man of the past.

A man of great courage, yet a man I call Dad.

We don’t see eye to eye, we hardly get along.

Yet with every sun rise, he welcomes me into his home.

A man of deserving pride, a man of great stature.

A man of service, and a man who tries.

A man of the Ages, yet a man I call Dad.

I know we hardly get along

I know we often disagree

But with every sunrise, I know

He’s a man who loves me.

Author's Note

~_~ Just another dose of emotional crap. I only care about reveiws when people read my books. I don't give a damn what you say about my poetry*

Updated. I cannot stand gramatical errors on so small a piece.

Great write dear :) Loved the sentiments which flow throughout your narration.
I don't find this is emotional crap - this your understanding and relation which you built with you father with time and maturity.

Loved it :)

Well although you may or may not care- I liked it. The ending really closed it off, I also like how it's specifically about your dad. It's sweet.

A very sentimental write. It really does shows the love you have for your dad.
My favorite line being "A man of the future, yet a man of the past. "
Nicely describes him for a forward thinking person whom we can find the future(hard to find at the current time)...

Nicely written. Thanks for sharing.

My name is Writer. I write because I write. To you, I am nothing more than a figment of the imagination; merely words on a screen. To others I can be more; good or bad is entirely up to you. I write b.. more..
