Today’s Father

The Father of today
Is free to take his role
In any direction he wants
He can set his own goal

Fathers of the past
Were shackled to society
Having to always fit in
Blinkered from other ways to be

Not allowed at the birth
No sharing of the nurturing
Only some playing allowed
But all the money to bring

Slowly change crept in
Allowing Father participation
Opening the floodgates of truth
Love: the heart’s revelation

Taking an active role
Feeding, changing and cuddling
Fully supporting a newborn Soul
Opens the heart to truly sing

Continuing to learn together
Through the years never truly apart
Helps balance the dual energies
Spiritual growth will impart

Trina Graves – 11th June 2019


About This Poem

After writing Father: The Changing Role’ I knew I wanted to write another poem about Fathers to also depict how the change has worked to bring more balance to the male energy. We all contain both male and female energy, but in the past the male energy has been way too dominant in many men. I believe becoming a father is a chance to experience a love that can break the cycle of the past and attune to a new way of being.

Much Love, Light & Blessings to all the Father’s everywhere: in physical, in Spirit and especially those who take on the nurturing role of father to those children who were not born to them.

Happy Father’s Day!

  1. An endearing picture of your son and his baby daughter! This is another great poem Trina! I agree with you when you said “becoming a father is a chance to experience a love that can break the cycle of the past and attune to a new way of being.” Yes, it’s very positive to see that there is a new freedom of expression and the change in roles is allowing men to express their feelings and love, and to get involved and participate more equally in raising their children. Much love and light to all! ❤

    • Thank you Amira. My son was only seventeen when he became a father, so very young himself, but it was obviously meant to be and his heart was then certainly set on a new path for fatherhood in our family! It’s been a joy to see them both grow. ❤
      Love, Light & Blessings ❤
