Eyes that deep
Hands covered in art.
Your silhouette like peace in the sun
Looking at you, I don’t see the weight you bear,
Or even your deepest fears
Looking at you,
I see someone that most men can’t compare to
Most men could not attest to
A man, in the rarest form
Side by side your sons
I see the way they look up to you and never through you
The way they desire your hand for their chosen path,
Your embrace for their safety net
No matter the day, you never lack for words to say.
You are always there for their reach.
These words are nearly insufficient.
Don’t encompass the respect and admiration I have gained.
You are king.
You have risen above these dilapidated environments.
Above these broken systems
Above these mindless folks
Created a world where they are protected.
An indescribable sacrifice
Or was it ever really a sacrifice?
When you have created and risen above your purpose in this life
