Freedom of Expression — Father/Dad/Pop

Today I’m writing an acrostic poem for my father, who passed on over 20 years ago. My dad did the best he could, all things considered.


Forever in my heart and memory

Always considering the well-being of his children

Taking time to spend teaching us life lessons

Happy to Help when we ask or he sees a need

Earnest in his beliefs and consistent in his practices

Regretful in later years that he wasn’t a better father to us
