A sports role model is not a daddy substitute
"Boys Need Daddies" by Robert Zimmerman



I lived my life without a dad.
It left a void so clear.
I saw the other boys with dads,
yet, I shed not a tear.
 
My grandma dear became my pops.
She loved me as her child.
She tried so hard to do the things
that let me not run wild.
 
I heard her voice, obeyed her will,
tried so hard to behave.
A growing boy needs lots of love,
and lots of love she gave.
 
I know about the boys these days,
being a mere laddie.
A role model’s not what they need,
all boys need a daddy.
