A helpless father

Posted on: October 6, 2016

He never wanted to be a father,
but he got married following the customs,
and intoxicated by lust, produced a baby boy.

He never wanted to be attached to his family,
yet everyday he felt sinking deeper,
into his unconditional love and affection for them.

He never wanted his son to join the army,
but didn’t stop him after witnessing,
his valor, love and pride for his motherland.

He never wanted his son, his only child, to die,
he wanted him to get married and be a father,
but God always seemed to be cruel to him,
yet kind to all other Indians his boy died protecting.

Just one word – “Respect”. Thanks for writing this poem for those who lay their lives for others.
