This poem is dedicated to my father and to all the great fathers like him who are role models for their children. Fathers often don’t get the credit or affection they deserve as they always act tough for the betterment of their family. The father-son relationship is one of the most complex relationship. Father expects his son to be tough hence a son can never show his emotional side to his father. At the same time the son looks up to his father for inspiration so the father has to be strong in all the situations. It creates a dilemma where both father and son care for each other but still can’t share their true feelings with each other.
Father teaches you to walk
Father teaches you to talk
Father is the first firm hand you hold
Father is the first firm slap you get
Father is the fear of doing something wrong
Father is the assurance that makes you feel strong
Father is the worst critic you have ever seen
Father is the biggest fan who ever lived
Father is the past you never had
Father is the free experience you always got
Father is the role model you always trust
But father will always be your best friend first
