Noemi Lee (2006)
Who will stand?
How do you-
is there even
whether or not
a man understands the gravity of his station as a father?
I am not sure.
I can surmise
that a man who understands the gravity
digs his feet in, and stays-
come what may.
And I can surmise
that a man who doesnt understand
But where do you put the ones
who slink away...
solely because they do
understand the importance
and the gravity of being a father,
yet refuse to rise to the challenge?
Are they men at all?
