Being A Father - Poem by Sanjeev Kumar

Being A Father, appears easy though,
Is biologically and energetically,
The most expensive process,
Yet people would question,
The contribution of a father.
It has been, and it will be.
Though critical to foundation of,
Each family; acting as teachers and,
Coaches, mentors and role models,
They maybe men, who would push,
Towards the social understanding of,
Earned successes and granted failures.
Towards the end of the life, being a father,
Means a window of experience worth his age.
Sit with him, and you come to know the difference;
Experience in life is far better than universal education.
Savor the willful words of wisdom for,
They might be the savior of the outgoing world.
“I saw this at 10, and I can’t see this at 70.”
Tells you all, the changes that have been marked,
Naturally or otherwise, differences sorted and noted;
“You must have been the biggest unwise if you,
Did not lift a falling girl, she could have been a life changer.”
Faulted, admitted, Defaulted yet again to acknowledge thence;
Puts a brake on the thoughts as the world celebrates father’s day.
