Who Did You Look Up To?

He followed behind, warm in his shadow;

Aspiring to one day fill his boots.

Today he felt much bigger than his nine years of age;

Because of the man he followed.


He may not be that significant to the rest of the world,

With his grunge and stains.

But behind the rough exterior, stands a Duty, a Father;

The Vocation that brings up nations.


And a Little boy who, for better and worse,

Looks up, and, with unblemished esteem,

Believes all that he sees.

One day hoping to achieve

The same greatness that stands before him.
