I am proud to be a father

12 October 2012, 15:20
I brought an innocent soul, how would I then find it a mission to look after?  God gave me such a lovely gift, why should I not take care of it?

I grew up struggling and fought my way up while my father was never there for me. Sleeping on empty stomach or share a little piece of bread was something I and my twin sister got used to, while my father had a good time with his wife and kids. Raised by a single mother would was heavily burdened, for she had to add her extended family member in her little budget, was an ordeal. He left her when we were 3 months old, so we were told. Regardless of the reason for them parting ways, that did not nullify and made void the status of him being the father to us. For someone who stayed 1,5 hours drive from home, I find it harsh for him not to visit us. For a person who passed 5 km away from home when he goes to town every weekend and month end, I find it hurting for him for not passing by even if it's once.

I always wished to see him and I waited for 30 long years and he never showed up. I then wonder, how could one bring kids to this world and forget about them? When he eats supper every night, did it ever cross his mind that he has twin kids and wonder if they ate too? Only to be told he passed on 2011, the pain was unbearable for I had wish to see him, chat to him even if it was once.

God gave me a lovely young boy. His mom left me for another man. She began denying me access and visitation. The thought never left my mind that my boy can walk the same path I did. I vowed, I will never put my son under the same situation. I promised myself that I will fight to death to see my son and be the best daddy I can be. Till death do us apart, I will be next to him and supply to his needs. Even after my death I still will supply to him, for I have put something for him in the reservoirs. 

I will never put my son under the same struggles I have got through, for I am proud to be his father.
