The Silent Sword
I do not care much for fathers.
I have had none of my own.
With them I do not bother,
To me, they are unknown.
Yet I believe I will be a great dad.
I will learn from their mistakes,
I'll give my children what I never had.
I'll do it for their sakes.
I would be a part of their lives.
I would refuse to leave their side.
I would make sure they thrive.
That I would achieve with pride.
I will teach them right from wrong,
As they grow into adults.
I will teach them to be strong,
As my efforts show results.
'How does it feel to have a father's love? '
They wouldn't know how to explain.
I don't know what I've been deprived of.
I know, though, it's something I won't gain.
Not that it really matters.
I live a good life.
It isn't bad, not shattered.
There is little strife.
Why do I dwell on this, it is far from near,
I won't be a father for many, many years.
