Dad Son Dad

Dad is all weather umbrella is what they say... rain or shine there to protect is what they say... But then don't we open and close it as per our need is he a puppet I wonder ... When torn and rusty we discard to buy new is he object with limited validity I wonder... When Dad needs protection Kids hestitate to be his umbrella is dad's not someones son and son others dad I wonder ... Cycle continues, many a Dad continue to suffer often at hands of son till he is dead is dad derivative of dead I wonder... Many a dad are taken good care of Sons compassionate as to their own kids is son derivative of bright sun I wonder ... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By Hitendra Mehta For June 2012 Poetry Soup Contest ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brilliant piece of writing highlighting an often overlooked problem of the entire world, unfortunately this problem is rapidly increasing in India also. I think the problem more lies in our own approach for our parents. If you have a caring & loving heart for them your sons & daughters would do the same to you or else one should be ready to face the fruits of what has been shown by him or her. Thanks for your good wishes on my Poem ‘When one sing a song or dance' Love & Best wishes.Ravindra

Nice one, Hitendra. Is it a custom in your country to refer to dad as an umbrella, like an expression they use. That is a lovely idea. He is a shelter from the storm!

a superb analogy with strong convictions written Hitendra .. a magnificent approach to old age and how children disregard the fact DAD was there when they were was orignally fashioned to work that way .. parents caring for children..then children caring for parents.. oh how the world has changed so..luv.. good luck in the friend...
