Father – Author Leon Pryce


Regrets – I had none

Happy days – wish I had some

Your fatherless ways

I adopted none

Who am I?

An imitation of my father`s son


You were to me

A father I wish I had

I learnt every word in the dictionary

Except “DAD”


I wanted to love you

But didn`t know how

I was a boy; I wanted to be a man

But didn`t know how

Because there was none

In my life then

And there isn`t one now


I took a journey looking back

While trying to go forward

I was weak

And needed the strength

Of someone I could depend on

I needed a father

I needed someone

Who was a part of me

And understand who I am


I need you

Don`t step back

It`s never too late to be my father

About the Author

Leon Pryce is from the streets of Montego Bay to the world comes a writer who is not afraid to express himself and let you know how he is feeling. Leon Pryce self-published his first poetry book titled Broken Wings as an experiment which turned out to be an astonishing success for a first timer because it out-sold his expectations. That experience has motivated him to wholeheartedly dedicate himself to another book project; a collection which will formally introduce him to the world as a poet with potential and power. A voice which cannot be suppressed, but will echo through the years to come. Immortalized Through Poetry encapsulates the personality of Leon Pryce and will give you the keys to unlocking this eccentric soul. He takes pleasure in offering you the parts of him which he is not ashamed of; that humble, innocent and modest youth who grew up in a small rural community in Jamaica.
