His Father Controls Him

His Father controls him.

Expecting a perfect athlete,

Forcing him into sports he doesn’t enjoy.

When he says he doesn’t want to go to practice,

His father gets angry.

The mom tries to help.

Then dad starts to yell.

He is only a boy.

He is supposed to find what he likes on his own,

Not to be forced into it.

Whether it be sports or not.

But, he doesn’t want to make his father angry,

Mother can’t take this anymore,

They leave.

If only dad could see what he was doing to them,

They would all be family.
