The Fighter

You fought for me when I was a babe

 

Asking what where my chances

 

Never taking no for an answer

 

You fought on when I was four or five

 

To have my intelligence to be recognised

 

You must have sat back in

 

Quiet victory

 

Confident in your ability to see

 

Hope where others couldn’t

 

But you did not rest

 

You push me on through primary

 

And after secondary school.

 

I didn’t realize why you pushing me

 

But now I know 20 years late you where trying to help me

 

Reach my potential .

 

Thank you Dad

 

Thank you father for being in my corner

 

Now I will be what you were for me

 

Fighter to help you get everything you need

 

To help you  achieve what  you want to achieve.
