 Poetry Through My Eyes and My World

A Gift Worth Having

Today is the day the world received its gift
A man of knowledge
A man of wisdom
A man of understanding
A father
My Daddy
He is the strength when I'm weak
The righteous when I'm wrong
A Black Man
Trying to make ends meet
But at the end of the day
He can still smile
When the dime can't make fifteen cents
Still he smiles
A better day is coming
Always is
Always has
After all
Today is the day the world receive its gift
A man of knowledge
A man of wisdom
A man of understanding
A father
My Daddy
A gift worth having
