Footsteps - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

The son follows in his father's footsteps,
Imitating the elder's way of life;
For he earnestly wants to make himself
Far from the trouble, from chaos, and strife.

The conduct of his beloved father
Is in accordance with the righteousness;
Such sheer, total, and complete submission
To Father brings him triumph and success.

His father's thought, word, attitude, and deed
Are a good pattern nice to emulate;
The mind and the heart are just both focused
On really reaching the new heaven's gate.

The son's divine aim before the Lord God
Is to complete the race set by the Lord;
As he treads on the right path of journey,
Backsliding is one thing he can't afford.

He renders his true manner of worship
The way that the Lord and one God accepts;
It is taught to him by his own father,
So he decides to choose the fine footsteps.
