Vader

(written many years ago for my son Anakin)

You live the life I wouldn’t live

You’ve got it all planned out

The things I often yearned for

Are the things you’ll do without

I’ve tried my best to teach you

How to not end up like me

To never settle as a slave

And make them pay your fee

To see the world and break your chains

And open all the doors

I never followed my Dad

So you shouldn’t follow yours

The greatest treasure in the world

I have already won

That day is burned in history

The day I called you son
