Growing up

“Never be afraid to try something new kid, remember amateurs built the ark while professionals built the Titanic.”

“But then everyone knows the tragedy associated with the Titanic, dad,”

I never realised
when or how it happened
which day was the last
when my father
could not make me smile anymore
which day
was the first
when my ideas
would not
fascinate him anymore

If I could find out that day
that hour, that minute
I would
abandon the constraints of time
and stop myself
from creating that invisible line
that now
subjects my childhood memories
to a sceptic mirror

  1. Powertful and so sad.
    I’m sure a lot of us has been there and faced something like this one time or another.
    Something so small and broken that grows and grows over a lifetime.
