    I. Kindergarten

    Hasty movement through a candle lit house
    His parents commence a joust
    Parental violence escalades
    A mother's echo fades
    A husband strikes his spouses face
    A young boy cries in disgrace
    Furious rage flings the boy into a cabinet
    Climaxing the wrath and magnet

    II. Elementary

    The world was split some time ago
    Parental guidance struck with blows
    The father strikes his son down
    The child dare not weep a sound
    Violent acts amplify each day
    So the boy could be a man someday

    III. Middle School

    Mother strikes his dad's reflection
    The boy cringes in acceptation
    Cries let forth from destruction once done
    A best friend's house a boy must run
    Puppy love from one so dark
    From the duo a new life will spark.

    IV. High School

    A child now has his own son
    His dad's visions die out, their done
    He lost his faith in God that day
    And establish with his son a new way
    Drugs and violence consumed his father
    But the teenagers new love would inspire

    V. College

    Teaching his son from right and wrong
    Brings dreary reminiscences of a lullaby song
    Once his dad and friend, now foe
    With nothing left, no love to show

    VI. Life

    He is a father not a dad
    His son respects him as a comrade
    We are but two different attractions
    Built with different views and satisfactions
    The man's dad will be missed for the love he lost
    But a father should love his son at any cost

    To my son I will always love and respect you. Followell 2007
