Happy Father's day

CAPELESS HEROES: An Ode To Fathers Who Go Farther | Sayo Aluko

Happy Father’s day,
To Fathers who have become a Daddy;
Who have mastered the Agape art
Of morphing back and forth between
Fatherhood, Daddyhood and Knighthood;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To Fathers who have learnt
To add their sons’ hopes to the value of grit
To add their daughters’ desires to the value of sweat;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To Fathers who have it as nature
To climb cliffs as it they were a meadow
For the ones who call them Daddy;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To Fathers who have it as first nature
To see themselves as last
To see Fatherhood as first
Who sacrifice every breath at every breadth, stretch;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To Fathers who actively seek satiation a lá fulfilment
In the pricelessness of their daughters’ tiny smiles
In the timelessness of their sons’ wide laughters
Even when it’s against the gradient of odds;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To Fathers who never outgrow
How to be a Daddy even in grey age
Who once a Papa, remains always a Papa;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day
To Fathers whose presence usher light,
Like a million suns of blaze;
To Fathers whose eyes possess a trifecta,
Of warmth, rebuke and safety;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To Firstborns primed by gene and birth
To walk the aisle of Fatherhood mostly unanticipatedly
Who do the job without compromise
Who have become the Janitors
Of their siblings’ years, tears, and fears;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day,
To single Single-parents
Unsung heroes
Who know twice the price for twice the pride
Who only rest at the 25th hour of the day
The 8th day of the week and the 367th day of the year;
May grace keep finding you.

Happy Father’s day to You.
Happy Father’s day to Me.
