Father - An Unsung Hero!!

An unsung Hero
The idol of sacrifice
Never says what’s inside
A Daughter’s pride
The Father!!

Recalling your rebuff
To whatever I say
Never stopping reprimand
I always felt like a prey

At 16, I saw you as a demon
At 18, you started sounding like a devil
At 20, I recall we fought like cats & dogs
Your presence for me was presence of evil

While I was bunking my college
Having fun with useless friends at MacD
I realize now that you were sweating out on the streets
Worrying about my next semester fee

All that’s coming back to me these days
I miss you & your rebuff my father!!
My own son treats me like nothing
The life had now become much more harder
How right you were and how wrong I was
Realization had arrived, and it took a little longer

Expressing my gratitude
This poem seems less
Hope you are reading all
And keeping me blessed

The Father!!!

    1. Hi Malavikka.....part of it fits into mine...and hope other parts fit into others :)

  4. A lot remains unsaid in the father son dynamic. As much that even a son's realization of his father's sacrifices bridges a huge gap. Nice poem!

    1. Agreeing with you....and yeah...very less is written about it.

  5. Aww!!! what a shot with father as spot. nice writing..

  6. Aww! what a shot with father as a spot! nice writing.

  7. You understand them little late. Fathers, unlike mothers, say a lot less but do more than that. Beautifully portrayed emotions.
