My Dad

October 11, 2010
By Anonymous

In my eyes he’s the world’s strongest man
And the most respected man
Through-out the land
He works for his family
And works through his pain
And I feel proud
To bare his name
So I’ll raise my chin in honor
With dignity
And hope one day
He’ll be proud of me
Smile and finally shake my hand
I can’t wait for the day he pronounces me a man
Although I’ll never be
Half the man he was
I’ll try my best
Though it’s never enough

My dad
Hardest working dad
My dad
Yeah I’m proud to call him
My dad
And when they lay him in the ground
I’ll still be just as proud
Of my dad….

My mom wants me to copywrite my songs and send them to a girl in nashville who write music with brroks n dunn and she said she can show them to alot of the famous singers and even if they just use a piece of it i will get the royalties from the money it makes. think I should do it? it could be our chance to make it big by writing
