He: A Father



Behind, beside you
ahead of you
always and will always be
there for you

Doesn’t say much, often firm
watching you from afar
but never leave
ready when needed

He rarely praises you
often criticizes you
but did you know
he brags about you

Your success, his honor
Your triumph, his pride
Your failure, his death
You are his treasure
He is your father

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

This is a breath taking piece, written from the soul. You are a very beautiful person spK.. Any normal man can make babies, but it takes a man to be a father. I wish the best for you and your family..

Thanks Edlin. You are right, scattering genes doesn't make anyone a man only in fathering that any man can prove that he is a man.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
