Putting his life on the line

Born in the era of selfishness
he upheld selflessness
Putting his life on the line

They lived their lives for themselves
Not taking their kids to school
Fearing their kids will forsake them, when educated

He lived his life for others sake
Taking his kin to get education stake 
Investing all his wealth in faith
Putting his life on the line

The fruits of his work dedicated to us
While they had fun, eating and drinking wine
Now we see him reap, for he shall no longer grief
While they are now seeking relief
That is my dad, my best friend

By: Bakari Matano
Original poem by; Karen Croft
Title: about my dad
