A Young Father's Worries and Thoughts

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

The worry the sweat the pain

Loneliness anxiety heartache.

Financial headaches are most common

As I sit in my home away from home.

Am I doing the right thing

For me my wife my son.

I'm beating and racking my brain for answers

I am forever receiving none!

How is it possible to continue going on,

When your game face is completely gone.

I sit and watch my son and wife as I arrive home very tired and beat,

Rest myself at the bottom of the bed where they are long fast asleep.

I smile, and then I know, Why it is I do what I'm so unsure of,

When I reach my home, I look down upon my gifts sent from above.

I like your theme in this poem. Of all the poetry that is written in these days, one doesn't often see commentary on what it is like to be a young father, man, and provider in today's culture. Maybe it's considered old fashioned, I don't know....

Maybe it's considered old fashioned, I don't know. But I think that there is alot of room for original work in this theme.

Yes, I respect the fact that he has sacrificed the ability to work a 9 to 5 job to provide a better life for me and his son, and realize what sacrifices he has and is making to this day in order to do so.
