    Call to Duty

    Call to Duty


    I GAVE MY SONS EVERYTHING THAT I HAD
    TAUGHT THEM TO WIN WAS THAT SO BAD
    REACHED INSIDE MY SPIRIT AND SOUGHT THE TRUTH
    AND I WAS CHARGED WITH CHILD ABUSE
    FILLED THEIR YEARS WITH WISDOM AND SKILLS
    DIRECTED THEIR BEING WITHIN GOD OWN WILL
    REJECTED FAILURE REFUSED DEFEAT
    MANAGED OUR LIVES AND STOOD ON MY FEET
    PUNISHED LIARS AND WHO BETTER NOT STEAL
    WOULD’NT LET THEM PLAY WITH ANYTHING THAT KILLS
    REWARDED FORGIVENESS PRAISED RESPECT
    THEM GET THEIR THOUGHTS OFF THEIR CHEST
    TOOK THEM FISHINB IN THE OPEN AIR
    FED ANYONE WHO WAS HUNGRY TO SHOW THAT I CARED
    VISITED THEIR TEACHERS AT SCHOOL EVERY DAY
    MADE THEM DO HOME WORK WHEN THEY WANTED TO PLAY
    I MADE THEM STUDY ON HOLIDAYS AND BREAKS
    MADE THEM KEEP TRYING WHEN THEY MADE MISTAKES
    ALL OF THESE THINGS TURNED THEM INTO FREAKS
    MADE THEIR LIVES HARD MADE THING LOOK SO BLEAK
    MADE THEM STAND OUT UNLIKE ANYONE
    ALLWAYS THE PUN OF JOKES FROM THE DUMBER ONES
    MY SONS HAD TO FIGHT ALMOST EVERY DAY
    TO PROTECT THIS LIFESTYLE THAT SOON WOULD PAY

    sounds like your giving good tips about raising young men. this poem describes love and strength. It takes a lot to raise young men as it is , let alone the everyday struggle we face as a people , however because of love you find it is worth the hardships. an example of pure parenting.

    I like seeing an involved parent like yourself. I have two daughters and I expect respect because I give discipline with love. ( and no better love than from our God and Savior, Jesus Christ)

    I grew up with a father who was not in my life at all and I think if he would read this he could realize how much he messed up. I am a firm believer that Daddies get Daddy memories....but Dad's don't get shit. VERY WELL WRITTEN!

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
