Ode to my father

I chose the wrong road
tried to be on my own
wanted to be different from you
wanted to be left alone

Wanted to be big,
tried to grow fast
dreamt of all the happiness
and love that would last

Did all those things
you’d hate me if you knew
but deep within me, now i’ve realized
there’s some part of you

I know you’ll help me decide
what’s right and what’s wrong
the hope you’ve given me
will always keep me strong

The good you’ve sowed in me
has helped me transform.
won’t let you down again,
I am proud to be your son!

Ode to my father

Artist's Description

it’s good to realize that people are there for you… and that they had been right all the time… only that you were too messed up in your dreams and confusions and mistakes to get a clearer picture of what people say… this one’s for you dad… with all my heart.
(wrote this in my college years)
