Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Train Up a ChildBig KRIT is easily one of my favorite artists and Rich Dad Poor Dad is one of my favorite songs.  I have been following his work for a few years now and had the privilege of going to show not long ago.  His music is meaningful, heartfelt, and he is passionate about what he does. The song I posted is an excellent example of that, here’s a sample of the lyrics:

Remember a child’s place is what I often heard while asking
About the things no adolescent could imagine

Trying on the pants of a man I had not yet become
Hands too small to button the buttons my father often fastened

While speaking on his dreams and ambitions
Although I could never understand
There was comfort that I listened, with mention to be better than him

I felt this song expressed some of the same things I tried to express in my piece “Train up a Child”.  My son is a child of 3 ethnicities (at least) and of two homes and as a father I try to do what i can to give him the tools he needs to make the most out of this life and to do better than I did.
