My Son

My Son

My car is crashed,

My bike is broken.

My scooter sucked and

My feet were fragile.


It’s fine though, for I have a son,

That I would provide for without worry.

I get up each day to get a living

So my son can soon go to college.


I must move on

Because I can’t imagine

Doing what my dad did to me


Parents are here to provide

There’s just no need to justify

We live in a time where times are tough

But my son will not know what happens when I’m not home


My car is crashed

My bike is broken

But I get where I’m going

Because I don’t know any different
