First Born - Poem by jerry hughes

Mark, my first born and I,
didn't see eye to eye for
a long time. Generationally
and diametrically opposed
on issues I didn't, or want to
understand we drifted apart.

But love must never be denied.
...I love you son...

    a father's heart talking
    ...a beautiful piece for a son as a whole
