I Wish I Could Be Half The Man My Father Was To Me - Poem by Daya Nandan

I wish i could be half the man my father was to me,
Opening the eyes of my child beyond the vision he can see,
I wish i had the will power to sacrifice like my father,
Despite all the financial difficulties he faced with my mother,

I wish i had his courage to face obstacles that life will throw,
To fight with will power with immeasurable persistence to show,
I pray that i can raise my children with love as my parents did for me,
Making them compassionate and kind men and women to be,

I am nervous of the idea of parenthood, i know not what to do,
I know not how to raise a life, mom & dad i don't know how to be you,
I wish i could have all the wisdom that you could teach and share,
So i can be a good father and raise my children with love and care

I have no idea how to discipline them, sometimes they are so wild,
I have tried scolding, and various punishments so mild,
I wish i could be like my parents and hopefully raise another me,
I may not do a flawless job but i will try to be the best a father can be,
