Dad Poem by Lucy Grainger


Dad
A dad is supposed to be a male figure in which you confide.
A dad is supposed to be by your side when everybody else is against you.
A dad is supposed to defend you all the way.
A dad is supposed to love you.

    Supposed is such a heavy feeling word with all its s's and p's. Brings the weight of the sentence right through it which is poignant. We can almost hear the ifs sounding around the poem. (Report) Reply
