the difference between my family and yours (day eighteen)

the difference between my family and yours

 

my father once told me that moments of crisis reveal true character

 

he rarely lost his cool

that man

 

i’d only seen him mad twice

 

once was at me

(i hope i never see it again)

 

he was never sure about much in his life

but he knew this advice to be true

from too many emergencies that went south

 

i learned this to be true in my own way

with how you handled my absence

(classy)

 

this only strengthened with how your mom handled it

 

she gave you plenty of advice too

but never followed it
