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.

I think like that about my mother sometimes we don't get on very well but in the end parents are parents they love you no matter what. I can't stand grammatical errors either I'm never good at punctuation or that kind of stuff so I never tell anyone off for it. Overall brilliant write and shows your love for your dad very strongly.

The repetition really drove this piece home for me - I simply would not love this piece any other way. Bravo, good sir.

It's amazing, I only wish i can say the same about my father......maybe when i live with him I can love him again. really great, your father sounds like a best friend too. =)- justin

I love it. It describes not only your father, but everyone else's fathers. I just think that repeating "A man of..." a lot is not necessary (we get it, he's a man). You also repeated "I call Dad" twice. Try not to repeat yourself too much. Then again, don't take my word for it. I'm not a professional poetry writer. Otherwise, it's very touching.

Coming terms with dads and moms…
Is an art….
I too... am going through it…..
Often ….after many arguments….
I too reach at your conclusion….
He is a man who loves me….

This is poignant. I have the same relationship with my Dad and my son with me...

Emotional crap, hmm, well, emotions are always hard to execute but I love this, a job well done, resonates with me a lot, although I miss my dad for different reasons, this brings home that they should never be taken for granted:)

This is beautifully moving, excellent poem xx

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..
