Divorce has corrupted our world…and not only that but the human beings inside of our world…I’m one of those teens that have been dramatically changed by it all throughout my childhood and will forever be.

My father made the decision that would hurt everyone.

My mom, my two sisters, me, and our other family and friends.

It may have caused us all too suffer a lot and we still do in many different ways.

But for me and my father,

I think we are finally realizing who each other are.

I couldn’t show my full love too him because he frustrated me.

Now I have opened the door and am letting him into my life.

Before he did not know I wasn’t allowing him in.

However, then came forgiveness.

He moved I stayed.

It didn’t bother me, he would still visit us.

This is when I realized the big picture.

It took him moving nearly 1160 miles away,
for me to realize the real love.

He was my father; I really do love him and have finally forgiven him.

Now I have to live with the pain of missing my father.

I can’t do anything to change it besides take advantage of our time together.

I may not see him for over a month and it will cause sorrow.

But let’s hope I can just look forward to that next trip.

The next time I will see him and create more memories.

Until then your face will be frozen in my head and heart.

Things aren’t fair.

Distance changes things.

You being my father; is forever.
