He inspired me

I want to begin by saying THANK YOU!!!

to the man who inspired me to be who I am today.

He did not give me gold, instead he made sure I’ve got the

tools to create gold.

I never had a chauffeur,

but  I was sent to the best school so I’d know

how to drive myself in this road called life.

While others would party, I had to study.

That’s how I was thought to prioritize.

I was often scolded for being shy,

he said shyness will bring me nowhere.

This is how I learned the value of self confidence.

He is difficult, I cannot be just like the rest.

This is just his way of saying I can be better than anyone.

“Any man can be a father,

but it takes a special person to be a dad” (Anne Geddes)

Thank you papa for teaching me how to believe in myself.

Thank you papa for providing the tools so I’d live a good life.

Thank you papa for sharing your wisdom so I’d be prepared instead of scared.

Papa, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever…
