Father's Day

by Stephen Earley Jordan, II

Mahogany father,
come into the light;
allow us to see the flesh,
the face,
that we,
the children,
want to embrace.

Mahogany father,
stay as you are;
for the true self
allows the followers
to continue following
both near and far.

Mahogany father,
bring forth
the Master's Mankind.
Show the children
how to understand
the unbalanced moments
in time.

Mahogany father,
with your Mahogany wife,
and Mahogany child,
allow no strife
to cause hearts of mild
when you are all to the family
the Mahogany father.
