I Look Into My Father's Eyes - Poem by Juwon Daniel
Sailing down behind the sun,
Waiting for my prince to come.
Praying for the healing rain,
To restore my soul again.
Just a toerag on the run.
How did I get here?
What have I done?
When will all my hopes arise?
How will I know him?
When I look in my father's eyes.
When I look in my father's eyes,
Then the light begins to shine,
And I hear those ancient lullabies;
And as I watch this seedling grow,
Feel my heart start to overflow.
Where do I find the words to say?
How do I teach him?
What do we play?
Bit by bit, I've realized
That's when I need them,
That's when I lose them.
That's when I need my father's eyes;
Then the jagged edge appears,
Through the distant clouds of tears.
I'm like a bridge that was washed away;
My foundations were made of clay.
As my soul slides down to die,
How could I lose him?
What did I try?
Bit by bit, I've realized,
That he was here with me;
I looked into my father's eyes.
