My Hero

Updated on April 16, 2010

"I stand with my grandfather’s son."


Being a father is truly a role that some men excel in and for some reason; some men do not. The art of fatherhood has no set measurement of love or of joy; it is weighed against what is positively learned by all as a result of being a father to a child.

We are all conditioned in some way by degrees of the relationship and trust that is shared, or was shared with our fathers. So many of us have learned to find fault in the one that gave us life; too easy it may be to forget that without life; we would not have the ability to judge.

Embrace the man that gave you so much, without whom there will be no you.Remember that if you judge your father; you judge yourself. Some of the people you will meet or have met in your life, have at some time considered their fathers to be fools.

“Only a fool can consider his father to be a fool.”


For all the cultures that honor their fathers for the seed of life that was given; it is generally understood that it is the role of that life; to positively build upon the platform created by the father for the good of the family.

I hope that the word below will show you that your father; irrespective of the perceived value of time together actually gave you more than you may ever realize.



As i walk through the shadows of darkness

I still remember pondering in his Godly love

It has been a tough journey from day one
But all the times he stood by me are firm
He guided me with the greatest vigor

His words are my carriage and strength
Always sparkling with tenderness and care

"The power in this hero was so difficult to resist"

All I know is that there is nothing i cannot endure
He left the greatest mark which i cannot trade

It is true that a few others provided so much
But it was me myself and my grandfather's son

He is my hero
The greatest

Among all men
That ever lived

His merits are
Nobel and sweet

He is my father
The best of all

My hero,my mentor and my best friend.

      Rossi, Great! I almost did not play the tune, and that would have been at my loss, with an a seriously large print word "STUPID". I now wonder how many half fast times I've swung and failed to follow through with my attempt to get the prize of the complete intention of the writer painting a picture by not finishing what was intended as a major part of the storyline? I found a very likable version of a song by Cat Stevens as well.

      Much Love and Peace
