Fatherhood

Fatherhood is this real?
Such time goes slow before
But now like the wind
It swiftly blows
Down pass time’s eternal stream.

A new life seeks dawn.
A heir to my temperaments,
My anguish, my pain,
And all my life’s
Incompetence.

Could she be just
A bit like me:
Intolerant, unkind
To all uncertainties
Or she be gentle,
Tame and free
Embracing and intriguing
Life’s insanity?

Fatherhood just let her be…

Let her grow up
Without her father’s
Incapacity.

Poetry writing emerged in me as a channel to relieve my angst and aggression against life and express my emotions on subtle things. It became my diary for quite a while. Feel free to experience my thoughts. If you do require my feedback, please leave a note on my MESSAGE BOARD below. Thanks.

    yes, we would all like our children to not have the imperfections that we have but maybe a few of the weaker ones would help create a more roundd person.

    We wish for the impossible of course. Hopefully our love and example can be a guide once they are born but much of their character is moulded already in the womb.
