A Rocky Start

Copyright 3-17-2017

Steve Lake

 

It was a rocky start

I would run, laugh and play

Just living for the sun of a new day

 

The more I played

The more your senses swayed

Was it like looking into a mirror?

25 years your past to the day

 

For every mistake I made

Was it a Déjà vu to you?

Bringing back memories

Days of your youth

 

Never did you explain

My punishment with a belt you laid

Pain of that moment

Memories of future days

 

From within each year I grew

Till one day eye to eye who knew?

A new understanding without words

A day I became competition

 

Pound for pound we stood

Eye to eye if you would

I inherited your mirrored looks

I also inherited your bad temper that took

 

For decades I separated our ways

Alone for you to sit and reflect on those days

To question yourself

To answer yourself

 

Yet through the love of your strap

A whip for honesty

A whip for bravery

A whip for good measure in the moment

During those decades I thought

Of those dry eyes not

Eye to eye in my mirror I inspect

All of my attributes I have left

 

I am not a thief

I am not a liar

I am respectful to all others

Realizing more pro’s than cons

This must have been your hidden desire

 

Then one day we unite

Too old and wise for a fight

Now I understood your ways

It was the upbringing of your days

 

Though it was a rocky start

Now we work together being smart

Sharing each day before the last

Living in forgiveness of the past
