Some people don't mind the giving of DNA, but not the life there after

Father Not Farther

There are so many ingredients that are integral in the recipe
That when blended would be the characteristics of a daddy
Some may believe that the job come to a form of termination
When they have made in this manner their DNA contribution

Being fixed in their minds that this is the main position
Would not even find the time to even help out their children
Having no will or even any interest of being a father
But will rather keep running around and hold that title of farther

As people in our life’s journey there will be some responsibilities
And our way of dealing with them will be reflected in those personalities
Some will be grounded in a sort of adamant and deep mind set
That they are living a life and only for what they can get

Yes there are men who are raising children not belonging to them
And they have risen to the task and mould them in model children
One can see the joy on both sides a product of the relation
Demonstrating that love and respect are elements in the solution

But what is the real measure for the units of being a father
Could it be that such a quality is so hard to accurately measure?
Because there are moments when the job seems devoid of pleasure
And some cases some men tend to bolt under the pressure

All praise to those who remain quite firmly on the track
Yes there are times when too peer pressure mounts an attack
Some may try to persuade based on the status of the mother
But remember the product the child must be looked after

So don’t let anyone deter you from stepping up to the plate
Let that feeling of a father not a farther come to the gate
Be there to steer, a guiding light, nurture and with whom spend some time
Because they are the special moments the will be painted in the frame of the mind
