Being a Father

Not perfect
but doing the best he can
balancing time and responsibility,
work and family…
his candle burned at both ends.

Wanting more than what he had
for his offspring
so difficult to achieve with
so many obstacles placed in his way…
he pushes on.

Misunderstood, yet loved;
strict, yet fair;
overbearing, yet a pushover;
loud, yet gentle;
he is so many things…

It is a difficult thing to be a father;
his achievements measured and relished
not only by the success of his marriage
but by the successes of his children
bringing peace as years pass by.
