I Am My Father's Son - Poem by Samuel Obono Jr

I am my father's son
fruit of his loins
morning of many a night
an end to his travails
in his eyes I am made;
the mirror of an unlived adventure
son of a sun
emblem of generations past

I am my father's son
strength of his grey hair
his joy at sunset
the memoirs of a lost youth

my father is a king
needing no crown or regalia
that makes me an heir
to the throne of meekness
