Father to Son

When I have my children
A father to my son
A builder of his confidence
Each brick for what hes done

I will build the highest tower
To the highest, whitest cloud
And put my son upon it
And watch him sitting proudly

It will be my finest hour
The best thing I begun
In my confidence this tower
Has built a man that is my son

Take what you can get
Dont run from it
These are your fathers eyes
And beware of the mimicking mirror
With widened prisoning eyes

It watches your every subtle step
Every fall and every rise
So know the power of a fist
A promise and a lie
Hardest thing begun
Be father to your son
