Today I saw nothing but blissness,
Covered up with clouds of video games and the exotic taste of Wi-Fi to lead me in the direction of blindness.
Today I felt my thumb and index finger throb in exhilaration with just a teaspoon of rejuvenating pain.
Today I sat anxiously looking at the screen,
Running away from reality by re-creating a fantasy where I was the hero.
Today I ran away from this distasteful land.
Just like most people would.
Today I became an ignorant human being.
I followed the loud whispers of 'ignorance is bliss'
And for that I got the sweet serene kiss of nothingness.
Yes I admit today I was ignorant and I ran
Dodging and jumping, avoiding trouble in the forest of life.
After all there's only so much one can handle.
Responsibility called out to me and I pulled my get out of jail free card and I sat in front of the screen.
Envisioning a world like my video game.
Today I was ignorant
But not for long.
Leaving my sanctuary screen,
It was that time,
The time where my chores screens in "finish me, do me, it's about that time",
Reluctantly I stood, eyes fixated on the trash I had to take,
With a heavy sigh.
I listened to the callings of my chores.
Plastic in my hand filled with yesterday's food,
Today's cleanings and maybe a little bit of breakfast.
Stomping down the stairs,
Unaware of my surroundings,
As ignorance enveloped me in a tight hug.
Shucks I'm only human.
My last step down the stairs
My senses heishtened, the warm chill envading my legs,
Causing goosebumps to rise, along with my left brow.
"Am I not to be ignorant? Why do I feel the wind? " my mind searched
My ears picked with a cry from a girl.
But this was no ordinary cry.
A cry of happiness when a daughter sees her father
A cry of contentness of an adventure between a father and daughter.
My ignorance shattered after that.
There are fathers that stay and become the greatest of parents
They need appreciation too.
Because a father daughter bond is just as important as a mother daughter one.
Let's appreciate dads too
