by Val John Jennings
Pride is defined as something bad
but, a proud father is this dad.
So I must avoid the haughty look
(or so I read it in The Book.)
So I'll just be grateful and admire
the truth and virtue to which you aspire.
I'll be filled inside with
the warmth of love. (The Comforter is from above.)
When children walk in Godly ways,
Parents sing a Godly praise,
and humbly thank all who have shown
our children that we are not alone.
When children fall, and they all do,
we hurt inside - start feeling blue,
but faith in youth will pull us through.
Change can come, and children grow.
For us it seems so awfully slow.
My pride is in my genetic clan.
My joy's found there, where it all began.
