Snippet *7

 

Father. A word so alien to me.

18 years I’ve lived, 18 years without him.

A new father, no knowledge of my life.

I’m the alien at childhood’s end,  

Looking empty to the closing future.  

One darkened moon left. Then we will collide.

Holy s**t...crazy, last I saw my real father was when I was twelve, I'm 43 now and I believe he has passed. Just keep in mind that people are human and all of us have had our issues, when you remember that, when you remember there is no cure for being human...things go a hell of lot smoother. there was a time when I was angry, it did me absolutely no good and as I got older I realized exactly how hard it is to be a man and more importantly a decent human being. Great write and good luck....hope it goes well.

I can relate...a lot. I grew up being a daddy's girl (I was about 5 when it stopped), and then he married another woman with another littler girl. I was forgotten and now I have no relationship with my biological father. I see him maybe once a year, and that's only because I want to see my little brother. I'm 19, and I've had no relationship with the man who created me since I was about 10 years old. So this really struck a nerve. It's really good.

Wow this is so powerful John, I really am blow away by this Snippet. I can imagine a young person dealing with the absent of a father and living with another but would never ever thought of in this metaphor. I'm impressed...nice write
