The Patriarch is a poem written to commemorate Father’s Day. This poem gives perspective to the lives of most fathers as they try to meet up with society’s demand on them and navigate life with the weight of a family on their shoulders. It’s a tale of how most of them spend their youth fulfilling responsibilities, never having time to enjoy their own labours. Most times, these disguised superheroes are never appreciated, not seen, in part because they always try to act invincible and also because life changes them in ways they never expect. Fathers focus on others, forgetting themselves. Like true heroes, they have put you and I first with absolutely no regrets.

Hug a father today. Tell him you love him, and mostly, accept himm for who he is

Happy Father’s Day.
