Dad why are you not as great as your mates?

Dad why do excuse cloud your face
When you’ve got bills to pay?
Papa why is it to you mom says
“Marriage is a mistake”.
I’m in here with you for my children’s sake?

My son,
“Result are the only betrayal effort has”.
I did not quickly realize
That it’s not every dark height
That promises a brighter light
On the other side.

Papa this your explanations
Haven’t still answered my questions.
You’re speaking in riddles
And am confused like a socket without a fuse.
What exactly did you use your strength for
When you were as fit as fiddle?

My hold on the rope of success
Was meek and feeble.
So when the storm came calling
I fell like a pack of cards
Into the oceans of vanity.

My son before I kiss the hands of time,
I take a last look between death and I
I see a thin success line.
Before I bid the world bye
I’d make more tries
Than I’ve made in my entire life
So I’d have a last chance
For the world to call me sire.
