Reflection of a Father


my father, my face
this man I see
one in the same
behold the reflection
of man is me!

what of that one,
some twenty year before
when promise was made to
live better than he
I swore?

by example, my thought
I know what not to do
the path I choose
must be different from you. 

I’ll set my sights
on lofty goals afar
reaching forth to
conquer yonder star
