On January 1 lath my dad came home around 9 o’clock from work & it was his birthday & he & I spent time together in my room listening to some old school classic music from the ass’s, ass’s, ass’s, & ass’s. People like The Doors, Pink Floyd, The Alan Parsons Project, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Phil Collins, Santa, Flatfooted Mac, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Metallic, Toto, Alice Cooper, Van Helen, & Cat Stevens.
We were in my room listening to these great artists Just talking about music for 3 to 4 hours on his birthday. But there was one song in particular a country song actually y Cat Stevens called “Father & Son” yes I know the typical father son bonding click but it was different this time. Him & I we’re really opening up to each other because we don’t remember the last time we even had a good conversation before his birthday due to his Job & me with school, you know the typical crap people go through.
But anyway when he played that song he & I were starting to tear up a little bit only from the right side of our eyes because, if you cry on your left first that means your sad, in pain, etc.. But if you cry out of your right eye that means you cry out of Joy. He told me that the day he & my mom have to leave is the day I’m on my own, that I have to be ready for anyone or anything that comes at me so I can overcome it & achieve & earn success because success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure, and loss only act as motivation.
That night is one moment I’ll never forget for as long as I live because moments like he & I had will stay with me for as long as I live man because my dad is not Just a parent but a best friend that I will always value because me & him are one in the same that I have a tighter bond with than anyone else in my family.
