“As Good As”

by A_F_R_O_W

 

“Not, Father.

Not yet.

As good, as it gets.

Early-rising.

Industrious.

Committed.

Taking care of us,

beneath the banner

of Faith.

My Kingdom Wingman.

There, have I nested,

in valleys,

and the flood.

Were we not blood,

I’d seek you,

for ‘Best Friend’,

who knows

what discretion’s about.

I, tell you.

Discerning advice, comes out.

Not, Father,

but,

esteemed Elder.

Son of Encouragement,

I thank you.

I love you.

May you, ever, flourish,

onward and upward,

from the root.

Not, Father.

Not yet.

But,

when that time comes,

it will totally suit.”
