    Come one come all
    to delight in the actions of brother Ball
    A talent in its truest form
    Unlike you and I he is not one we consider to be of the norm
    You see he is of young and old spirit
    Jumping from that of one to the other
    The oldest of he is set in his ways
    That of and old dog unable to learn new tricks
    The young so unstable and bouncing around
    Doing anything he can to differ from old
    Those to the left of him see him and say I've seen this all before
    You they say the past always repeats its self
    This is true and unstoppable
    Like father like son this poetic story has begun
    You only see one but its a two for one
    The old is the father the young his mini me A.K.A. his son
    My fathers past will one day be my destiny
    To follow his footsteps to greatness that soon where ill be
    And they will say as they see me seperately
    He is truely his fathers son this is a sight to see

    A Father’s Love

    I delighted in your birth
    I’ve raved about your worth
    I’ve relished the joy you brought into my life
    Every moment with you…is like the first

    I smile at the sound of your voice
    Your off-springs are so much like you
    (But) they can’t help it
    You gave them no choice

    So, I smile

    When praise is heaped upon you
    When comparisons are made: “He’s so much like you”

    And, I stand proud

    When you accomplish your aims
    When you back up your claims
    When you struggle to stand
    But stands like a man
    We’re Balls
    And we’re proud of that name

    When you said, “I DO”
    Became a father…and stood true
    Every time I see you
    Boys in hand…and wife, too
    Always being a man…like I raised you
    I’m proud of you, baby boi.
    I love you, too

    Watching the two of you interact is such a blessing. Great poetry, too.

    It seems BallerSon, you are surely on the correct path that will lead to your father's same poetic magnificence! And as for the content... when I see the interaction of father and son, it is like art in motion...beautiful to see, just as this piece!

    Awesome poem!

    Baller I smiled while reading his piece:) And your flowback rocked special!
