Poem For My Son

“In the east fame is won.
In the west deeds are done.”
–Henry David Thoreau

All fathers and sons
feud at times,

If not aloud
then in silence.

It’s Nature’s way
of passing the torch.

Like King David in the bible,
You are a wrestler with life.

He partied like a rock star too
And became one of God’s favorites.

And like him, you are a leader.
When the time comes,
You will know what to do.

Do your deeds in the east,
If that is where Fate has taken you.

The west, and I,
aren’t going anywhere.
