Father’s Son


When growing pangs become weapons

in a war waged between father and son

the world ahead beckons, it beckons

promising victory in battles that can’t be undone

Unaware as the old guard changes

they are pawns in the game

that history prearranges

always designating misplaced blame

Experience is said to trump ambition

in a world with broken rules

and hearts filled with suspicion

by one deemed so cruel

Repeated time and time again

the struggle for validation

as boys fight to become men

adds to the cycle of frustration
