I see my father as it is: an old man affected by the course of events.
This means growing up, realizing who your parents really are?
He is no longer my giant to help me fight monsters and the wrongs of the world. He is just a man who cares about me deeply. He cannot help me.
I’m on my own and believe me, life is a scary thing to face by yourself. I have the hope of a better future, when I could provide for him, as he did for me.
