WOTD apprentice

Apprentice

2 for 1 today, both short
I’m a student in search for a teacher

My lessons have been given through the grave

My masters moved on years before I was born

I’ve learned only through observation

Awaiting my chance to  step out from their long gray shadows
I’m a father who is learning how to father by my children

My father has been the negative exposure to what I believe

I’ve found that doing the opposite only goes so far

My daughters are patient teachers

They forgive my many faults and praise like only a child can

I’m filling in my ignorance by asking other men and as we know men prefer to remain silent than show their ignorance
