I Unafraid (2017)

I was a boy when people asked me…

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Unafraid I thought. “I don’t know.” I answered. 

I just wanted people to stop hitting me. I just didn’t want to be afraid all the time. 

I grew tall and people asked me. 

“Why are you so angry? Why do you drink so much?”

“I don’t know. ” I lied. 

I am 58 years old and I  am a father and I know what I want. To teach her and show her love and support her and be her friend… and paint and make films. 

“I will tell story.” said I.
