Already Too Big, For Too Big Boots. #poetography #dadlife

My buddy

In my boots

This kid

Has personality

At clearance

store volume

His comedy

His humor

Flows over

Cascades over

And out

Of those canoes

Some call


Still small

Only six

And yet

His personality

Is too big

For these boots

He can already

Fill Daddy’s shoes


How big of


They are

To fill.

All children

Can readily

Fill the shoes

The boots

Of their


It is my job

To not

Diminish him

To make him

Feel large

Not small


Not embittered

Lest I make him

Too small

To fill boots

He is already

Too big for.
