Father - Poem by Reagan A. Latumbo

A man I look up as a model
A man so hardworking, I can tell
A man who loves my mother
A man who cares for his sons and daughter.

You are the person who makes us laugh
You are the person who inspires us to be tough
You are the person who defend us
You are the person who molded us.


They say you are a coward
They say you are a drunkard
They say you are not brave enough
To face the agony of life, you just shut your mouth up!

The words they tell are true
You are a coward to leave your family out of the blue
You are drunk when you went home
Our house sometimes look like a doom.


I saw your beast side
When you shout at me outside
When you punch me inside
When you kick me on the other side.

It was a nightmare for me to remember
It was a bad memories, wish I could not utter
I am just your son and you are my father
I have no right to fight back because love is all that matter.


I realized why you did that
You only want what's best for us
To go on the right track, the right path
And follow your words that will inspires all of us.

I never hated you
I never blamed you
I never forsaken you
I just loved you.

Thank you for making us smile
Thank you for taking care of me all the while
Thank you for being my father for 25 years of my life
Thank you for loving me, I love you Goodbye!
