I adore you…
Your will undeniable,
Your word unbreakable,
Your strength undefeatable,
I never stood a chance.
You’re the all brave, all mighty,
The giver of life, the righteous,
And I must follow you, obey you
Follow your footsteps, or be punished,
But I was disobedient,
a curdled flesh
unworthy of my creator,
A disgrace in his presence.
“Bless me, father, for I have sinned.”
(Your mighty fists resound inside my head.)
“Forgive me for defying you.”
(Your glorious feats like whippings I can’t bear.)
“Save me from this darkness, my savior.”
(Your word a storm outside my world.)
“And mold me in your spirit.”
(I hated you.)
I am a follower of your girdled path through goodness,
A witness of your immortal rule.
This poem was created when I started being aware that my parents are very self-serving when it comes to decision making. I was so frustrated back then, but now I understand that every person have all their self-interests weighed in before giving their decisions, and it works the same with parenting.
