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!!!

  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!

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