Not All Fathers Will Get A Chance To Celebrate Father's Day - Poem by Elena Plotkin
Not all fathers will get a chance to celebrate Father's Day.
Some are too quick to run while others are quicker to stay.
Some are prone to neglect while others can't help but care.
Some are always absent while others find ways to be there.
Some know how to hurt while others do nothing but protect.
Some know how to devalue while others love and respect.
Some know how to degrade while others know how to encourage.
Some are born lowly cowards while others are true men of courage.
For you see the sad fact of life is that not all Fathers are the same.
It takes more to being a father than just carrying around the name.
Only those who are heroes and role models to their kids every day,
Get the great privilege to celebrate being a father on Father's Day.
