'cause I know the biggest crime
is just to throw up your hands
this has nothing to do with me
I just want to live as comfortably as I can'
I sometimes tell people I sprung from the head of Zeus like Athena.
The truth is my mother never told me the same story twice about who he is or was. I have my theories about why, but in the end it doesn't matter.
So I appreciate good fathers. I really do.
I'll tell you a secret:
Good Dads very often bring a tear to my eyes. Good men are important and special.
And, I think you don't have to be an actual biological parent to be a good "Dad"
Sometimes the man who lives next door and helps you change your tire is filling that role, even though he has no kids of his own.
Sometimes the stranger who opens the door and helps you carry groceries so you can deal with a tired toddler is being a good "dad".
And for those Fathers out there who for whatever reason are feeling like they fucked up, or missed out or had their last chance.
Don't sit there on this day or any day for that matter.
There is always time, to be the right kind of Dad. To accept your children for who they are.
Who they REALLY are.
Get over yourself and your expectations. Be a good Parent. There's still time.
