Their Eyes

Their Eyes

In the darkest corners of my mind
There are parts of me…
Kneeling with my arms hugging my knees
Afraid!
Of challenges to come!
Showing emotion towards the fear
Is impossible
Because then…
That same fear
Will spark in them…
My children!
Boldness
Courage
Enthusiasm
Shine from my character around them.
My presence brings
Security
Love
Joyfulness…
Because as I look around….
Smiles have left many faces of the young.
And the more that my children are around them
The mannerisms of their peers
Can possibly become them!
But hopefully…
The dominance of my character
Is radiant in their eyes.
Helping them…
Fight battles
That I can’t possibly imagine
Battles that…
Will attempt to corrode the foundation I’m laying…
Seeking its demise!
And even when the darkness
In the darkest corners of my mind
Become pitch black
When you look into my children’s eyes
I hope u see…
The reflection of ME…
Their Father!

  9. Children.
    Fathers.
    Sometimes I think the Higgs-Boson particles, invisible, unmeasurable sub-atomic-jammies link us: fathers to kids.
    Thanks
