My Father Taught Me! :)

Those qualities my father has given me
reach beyond just love and stability.

He made me learn how to wield a hammer,
- a tool which is not just used for hitting nails.

He made me learn how to hold a pen,
- a prized-weapon much safer with an eye on detail.

He made me learn how to treat my people,
- be it man, woman or animal.
 
He made me learn how to help others,
- more so when one might fail.

He made me learn how to never give up,
- a strength that strengthens the idea of prevail.

He made me learn how to be myself,
- a person that no one else could ever avail.

..many more are the qualities, my father gave me,
and they made me what I am today. Thank you Papa!
