The Good Son Dante

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Happy 14th Birthday Dante

Happy 14th Birthday Dante

What is a son to a father?

A son is like he when he was younger.

A son is the seed bearer of his name

The boy who will become a man and carry on the flame

Dante Jaheem Williams, you are the best son a father could ask for

Kind, humble and obedient just like the savior

I am glad you are mine, the clone of me

How handsome you are and even more to become, in growth will see

Just the other day you were a hairless chap

Now look at you growing hair all over like a dread locks

Pretty soon I will have to teach you how to shave

As testosterone rushes through your body like a wave

I know you are a good person because you have that December Power

Strong and willful, yet scuttle and humble, a wise listener

Dante, your dad loves you much more than you believe

I watch you, I look at you and understand your teen life and peeves

But always be steadfast on your goals. make them much more than ABC's or 123's

Always strife to be a good person, never one to deceive

Have little friends, love your family more

Because when it comes down to the wire, friends disappear and family stays true to the core

This is just a special short poem for you on this special day.

Dante Williams, my son. Happy 14th birthday.
