Fatherless - Poem by Charity Nduhiu

Fatherless I am stranded in life
without education no one to
install fatherly love in me
no one to give fatherly instruction
Oh how I envy you who have fathers

Take advantage of your fathers
they say parents are second to God
but I say to have a father you are
next to your second God
Oh fathers how great you are in a family

Fathers take full control of your family
I imagine a world without fathers
would there be any life at all
now you see why you are vitaI I salute
you fathers not that I am jealous
it is just because I am fatherless

Topic(s) of this poem: love and art

    A father in a family is a pillar unshakable by storm and shade to all arround him, Father is a God representer on the family but unfortunately some fathers let God down, Nice poem, keep it there. (Report) Reply

    Truly, a father's love is the second largest ocean of love, first being the mother' (Report) Reply
