The Image That Looks Back


Friends (Photo credit: rogiro)

His image looks back at him

Seeing a young boy that smiles and laughs innocently

Sadly, he only sees what wasn’t his youth

The young boy stares at him in the mirror

exposing a proud son that is pleased with his father

Unfortunately, he only sees what he didn’t have

The youth stares at him while wrapping a green turban around his head

tugging at it

Making sure to get it perfectly wrapped for Jumu’ah

He sees a young boy that is keen to look like s father and to be like him

The image tugs at him and wakes him up to reality

He will never be the father that was absent from his childhood

He will be better

He will be there for his son
