Fathers and Men

My father
Wasn’t able to give me much
But he gave me these
Lessons he learned in life
A man who can’t cook for himself
Can’t be called a man
Never be afraid
To change, apologize, or admit
You can be wrong
And whatever rough waves knock you
Off your charted course in life
It goes on no matter what
Had my father
Not learned these lessons
We would be further apart
Then we are now
And if I had not learned from him
I would be further from the good man
I try everyday to be
