On Fathers’ Day

 

As a kid, I saw my dad as a hero, I idolized him.

As a teenager, I saw my dad as a villain, I hated him.

As an adult, I see my dad as a person, I understand him.

My father is a good person. But like so many old adults, he is a hypocrite.

I have inherited things I love and hate from him. I aspire to not end up like him.

Like most men, my father is selfish. Like most people, my father conforms.

My father loves me and I love him but some human flaws can’t be ignored.

Happy Fathers’ Day.
