joinin’ the rank

he aspired
to follow
his father’s
foot-steps

a
childhood aim
a
distant dream

he wasn’t
attracted to
perks of
the power

he wanted
to serve
he needed
to help

he felt
a responsibility
to make
a difference

so focused
he was,
on his
desired goal

he did
not falter
he did
not budge

commitment paid
hardwork resulted
his turn
soon came

to run
the miles
to march
the parade

to don
the uniform
to carry
the baton

he had
become
his father’s
son
