Poetry: "Just Like Him" By Chloe Glass

Just Like Him
By Chloe Glass

He was built solidly,
as his father was. 
He was a farmer,
as his father was.
He had a family,
as his father did. 
He worked hard every day and
 put food on the table,
clothes on his children’s backs,
as his father did. 
He was selfless
as his father was. 
He did nothing but
try to do what was best for his family,
as his father did. 
He had a son,
as his father had.
He had a bright son,
as his father had. 
He had a son who
Dreamed of traveling the world,
of going to college,
 and leaving his small town behind,
as his father did.
He had a son
who grew up just like him, 
as his father did.
