Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

My True Father

Graceful and expressive
yet has the potential to be cold
I've loved no other the way I've grown to love you
I run to you in sorrow
I run to you for comfort
You have provided me with all that I need
With you I am no longer me
You allow me to experience my true self
outside of who I'm perceived to be
You alone know my fears
You alone know the true desires of my heart
And you judge accordingly
God I can do all things through you who strengths me
When my biological father rejects me, its you who
loves me
You accept my flaws, failures and imperfections
And still you love me unconditionally
