The Art of being a Father

The art of being a Father
Is knowing when to step back
To let your child grow strong
In their own sunlight

Step back too soon
And they may not have learnt from you
The resilience to withstand
Sun’s heat

Step back too late
And they may have spent so long
In your shade
They do not grow strong

Few are the fathers who
Teach their sons
The art of being a father
I hope you are one of the lucky ones

If not, don’t despair
The art of being a father
Can be learnt
It starts with a step back
