Fatherhood thoughts Vol.1

Looking at my few weeks old son does make me a bit mushy. This movie quote springs to mind.

I want to do something with him that's his first time. I'm going to look in his face when he tries ice cream. Every time he has ice cream for the rest of his life, he's going to see my fucking face.

---From the film "the place beyond the pines"

In the corner of your mind

it seems vague
life as it shapes
rising to occasion
without any concession
not the easiest job
makes mess of thoughts
hard to decide the "rights"
"wrongs" come with ease
running away isn't choice
suicide isn't really bright
you don't seek perfection
neither have selfish intentions
you visualize only darkness
unusual dread sets in
optimist inside you is no more
pessimist completes takeover
still a flame flickers somewhere
but is blown away soon
it may not seem as bad
but it keeps getting worse
you keep straight face
slap on a smile for heck
as you try to hide it
somewhere in the corner of your mind
