Who am I, without the presence of my father?
Who am I, without the support of my father?
Who am I, without the mercy of my father?
I am nothing, without the love of my father.
All that I am,
All that I will ever be,
Is because of a seed
That was generously planted
In this generation.
Brought with blessed tidings wrapped in my arms
Positive change engulfed in my fists
Love in my heart
And beauty that I see,
You chose only the best for me.
The best schools,
The best decisions,
The best mother,
The best brothers,
The best family.
I grew up in that best,
And yet in my growing,
I realised a world without you,
In its enviousness,
The world sought to take what was mine.
My joy, my peace, my love….
But because I was born out of a Godfearing father,
A zealous man,
A strong man,
A determined man,
A hardworking man,
A passionate man,
A positive man,
… I too, became like you.
So when the world sought to take my wealth,
I only grew stronger,
And became even richer.
In it’s canning desire to tempt me from my path,
I will never fall short,
Because what you have given me,
Nothing that breathes,
Nothing that cannot breathe,
Can take it away from me,
For I am my father’s daughter,
And your legacy will live on in my heart and life forever,
With the Grace of your heavenly Father,
Whom you chose for me to believe in.
I love you…❤
