Sun Flower

Fathers have a bond with their son
Is it automatic from birth or is not?
Is it gender related?
I don’t know
I try to grow like a sunflower
But my sunlight is being blocked by the oak tree
That towers above me.
I try to go out with my friends
But only seeing that oak 26 weeks out of the year
Is hard on my delicate flowers and the oak
Our relationship shares a common root
It’s hard to let some light in when
You know its time
My sunflower will grow sometime
By choice of the oak
Or because Mother Nature will just have to adapt
To the change that is occurring
That root will have to be cut.
And the flower will have to grow
