I chose my dad to be my father

With the shiny lantern of wisdom 
Creeping through the dark tunnel of life 
To meet the world as far as I could; 
Boulders which curbed my path 
Kick them off as tiny round pebbles; 
Dad, You navigated me when I was young. 

Deem the pain of others as mine; 
Share the blithe of life among all; 
Aware us all breathing same air and dust 
Living on same Earth, under the same sun; 
You taught me things which were not in books; 
Dad, You were my first alma mater that I could trust. 

To be truthful in front of a bullet; 
Not to be greedy for power or wealth; 
Content with reap what I've earned; 
Fill my heart with love not with hate; 
I adore your vision though hard to lead; 
Dad, I follow you as FATHER  of my life!
