Fathers who set an example
Of what fatherhood is supposed to be,
Are fathers who teach their children
To know what fatherhood is.
 
To see a person is to see
The replica of his father:
His features, his stature, his morals,
His courage, his philosophies,
His willingness to love,
His affection toward his wife,
His masculinity, his faith,
His love of his neighbor,
His obedience to the
Role of guardianship, his frugality,
And his willingness and ability to
Prepare for future generations.
 
Fatherhood is a cautious
And laborious life,
But also an admirable one.

This poem is for the magazine"The Belt and Beyond." for Father's Day.
