It has been over 7 years since I last saw my father, he looked happy and I didn’t understand why he was leaving me and my mom. He said he loves me and cares about me, but yet since he left he hasn’t called once to wish me a happy birth-day or Christmas. I didn’t understand then that my parents got divorced and mostly I didn’t understand why he wouldn’t come and see me. As the years passed and I grew more distant from him, I started to ask questions and my mom told me the answers, answers I couldn’t understand. As I grew older I called and finally was able to speak to my father, it was a few days after my birthday, as I asked him why he didn’t call he said he forgot the fact that it was my birthday. The more time passed the more I disliked my father. There were times when I wished he would come to me and there were times when I felt as if I hated him. In the end I got over it and came to conclusion that I lacked a fatherly figure and I wont know what some kids have, but all in all It’s ok because I’ve grown to be someone strong enough that one day I will face my father again. Not everyone gets a dad, and those who do should be thankful of them, thus if you don’t its ok too.
