Touching Poem, “Me and My Father”

When I was 4 years old                 : “My father is THE BEST”

When I was 6 years old                  : “My father seems to know everyone”

When I was 10 years old               : “My father is excellent but he is short tempered”

When I was 12 years old               : “My father was nice when I was little”

When I was 14 years old               : “My father started being too sensitive”

When I was 16 years old               : “My father can’t keep up with modern times”

When I was 18 years old               : “My father is getting less tolerant as the days pass by”

When I was 20 years old               : “Its too hard to forgive my father, how could my mum stand him all these years”

When I was 25 years old               : “My father seems to be objecting to everything I do”

When I was 30 years old               : “Its very difficult to be in agreement with my father, I wonder if my grandfather was troubled by my father when he was a youth”

When I was 40 years old               : “My father brought me up with a lot of discipline, I must do the same”

When I was 45 years old               : “I am puzzled, how did my father manage to raise all of us”

When I was 50 years old               : “Its rather difficult to control my kids, how much did my father suffer for the sake of upbringing and protecting us”

When I was 55 years old               : “My father was far looking and had wide plans of us, he was gentle and outstanding”

When I became 60 years old       : “My father is THE BEST”


NOTE that it took 56 years to complete the cycle and return to the starting point “My father is THE BEST”

Let’s be good to our parents before it’s too late and pray to Allah SWT that our own children will treat us even better than the way we treated our parents.

Allah SWT says : “Your lord has decreed that you worship non but him and show kindness to parents. If one or both reach old age with you the do not say uff! To them nor repulse them, but speak graciously to them” – (Q.S Al-Isra : Ayat 23)
