Go and prove

I knew of his absence
And this kept me tense
I was worried to some extent
As I was true parent

I can not neglect some of the aspects
As he had failed to show some respect
As child he was supposed to be lenient
And we were his dear one and parent

Day by day he was proving difficult
He was no doubt heavily built
I had given him enough of chances
So I offered him to choose at once

He was ready to leave any time
As he had lost already sometimes
He wanted to carve out his own kingdom
I had no reservation but he lacked freedom

“Sun, take your own decision” I swiftly told
He showed some keenness and appeared bold
’Do not worry dad” I shall prove correct
Now he was determined to act

I patted him on shoulder
Now he looked like disciplined soldier
There was enough of confidence
This was not mere coincidence

I gave free hand
And wished as good friend
“Go and prove, the sky is wide open”
I wished good luck to my own sun

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
