I kept asking myself,
Why did my parents divorce?
Weren’t we going to be the perfect family?
Time passed and my father left
He left to Mexico
Another bump in my road
Why did he leave?
When is the next time I’ll see him?
He said he would be there
when I needed him,
But he was not.
I started to have resentment on him
Even if I didn’t want to
There was something in me
That didn’t allow me to see him as a
I had mixed emotions
I was sad
I was upset
I was ANGRY
I stopped talking to him for years.
My mother had finally convinced me to talk to him
He was in the hospital
I wouldn’t have known if I had not called.
I realized that not talking to my dad was not right.
If something happens to happens to him
I wouldn’t forgive myself.
A couple years passed by
And I finally had the courage to go see him in mexico,
I had different expectations for the trip.
When I got there,
He didn’t even go pick me up
It was his driver.
And it was not because he was sick,
It was because he preferred work instead of me.
I let that one go,
The next 2-3 days passed by
I didn’t see him because he was out of town with his family.
Yeah that was a rough time for me
I wish he would have at least invited me
So I can spend time with him and his family.
On my last day in Mexico
I saw him,
I wasn’t too happy to see him, but
He apologized for everything he had done,
I accepted his apology
He is my dad.
And I was glad that he was fine, in terms of health.
Although me and my dad don’t have have best relationship,
We know we will always be there for each other.Tags: family Life Academy of Health and Bioscience Love Memoir Oakland
