The Man Said This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Whenever I met up with this man

He said to do something and I did.

I was not ordered: he demanded.

Whether I thought the demand was

Funny, stupid, idiotic, screwed up or

Whatever feeling I felt inside

I always did what the poor-wreaking man

Said, no matter how tough I thought I was.

It might be bizarre that I listened to him,

The main reason is because I grew up,

Got raised and had an up and down childhood with him.

This man is called father.

He is the man I celebrate here ....
