To My Dad - Poem by Adegbite Adeyinka

I write to honour a father
The figure that bears my weight
Who helped me walk farther
Than even I can, and straight
One, through storm and squall
Taught me to always stand tall
He'll let me have when he doesn't
And makes me better where I wasn't
Happy Father's day, Dad
You're the world's reason to be glad.
