What makes me think I easily fail at the ‘dad’ job is the refusal to assist sometimes. Why do I refuse? Culture defines it. Parents, especially mothers, teach their children how to behave as men and women.
Love found me late last year, when I wasn’t even looking and when I least expected. It happened so fast and it was amazing.
Then, it ended the same way it started; with me not looking and when I least expected.
You know that feeling of running out of water when you’re halfway to quenching your thirst? Yeah, that was me for about six months. It sorta still is…

Now though, it seems I do not have the luxury of waking up and realizing I am a de facto adult, and let the fear that had germinated, festered and bore fruit in me (as evident in my many procrastination), float above me like a brooding demon, while I stare powerlessly at it.
