Fot The Sins Of Your Father - Poem by Francis Duggan

Your badly flawed dad may be serving prison time
Among all like him who have resorted to crime
But his sins in life should never be your shame
For his wrongdoings he has himself for to blame
The saying of like father like son does not always apply
Of who you are to anyone never deny
Because of your dad your identity why hide
On the person that you are you ought to take pride
Unlike your dad you are one who does not have darkness of mind
You work hard to support your wife and your children and you are compassionate and kind
In any way you never put anyone down
So why not walk with your head high when out on the town
For the sins of your father you are not to blame
He is an individual and his is his own shame.
