"Before yoy criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you are a mile away from them, and you have their shoes."

Some call him brother, son, and husband
I call him dad
His mind is like and ocean
Just waiting for its next catch
The world is his canvas
Just waiting to be painted
The color he loves most resembles his skin
Deep and dark
His dark brown eyes
See the good in everything
He paints life
Joy, sadness, and anger
He may not always be there
But I know he cares
My father
My dad
What ever you call him
He is and will forever be
And artist
