The look in his eyes

Every time I look at my father, I can see the sadness in his eyes

His presence breathes an aura of disappointment towards me

It’s almost as if he’s questioning every decision he ever made concerning me and each time the conclusion is that of a regret and a big mistake

It breaks my heart to see him this way

But I’ve made up my mind that this life belongs to me and I need to do the things that makes me happy

Selfish as it may sound…

I no longer feel the need to prove anything to anyone but myself

And I hope one day, being myself will surely lift up the sadness in my father’s eyes.

Until then, I’ve got one life to live and I’m living it the best I know how to
