To Papa

A son I gripped for discipline 
          Has now broken-a-lose from what he thought were chain 
I have no more words that he'd love to hear 
          My ways and schemes were just too hard to bear. 

Not so long ago he was a child 
          But tender age wasn't a reason that I'd be mild 
Ahead is a wicked road that he would roam 
          It will be too enticing that he'd mistook it for home. 

Oh how I wish to have him always by my side 
          But I can't own his time and impose myself to be his guide 
I need to keep my statutes so loud and so clear 
          I need to mold him as to whatever it takes for he is so dear. 

He can see me by now as a tyrant that boasts 
          Yet I'll be his hero when I am a ghost 
Then the harshness of me that was wrongly perceived 
          Are lovely memories as he visits my grave....

Written in memory of Jesus L. Nadela, my disciplinarian father.
