My 2nd Pair of Eyes

by Lina M.

Kiss him on the forehead,
for he is my father
The strongest man
Brought me up with
HONESTY, DIGNITY AND PRIDE
Dad, how will I survive?
Open your eyes
Can’t you see
this life
he never wanted for me
 
I’m sorry Dad once again
I really am
 
Want you to know I love you so…
You’re right I won’t give up the fight
A soldier I will be
Watch me
You will see
How proud you
Will finally be
This is how it’s meant to be
PROUD and FREE
YEAH! THAT WILL BE ME!
