ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

Every Thursday, I will pick up a “prompt word” to be acted upon by y’all. You are free to go wild with your imagination and interpret the “prompt” in any way that you like – photo, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, quotes, articles or drawing/painting – whatever works for you!
In short, it’s all about you being the BOSS and choosing the best way possible to express and depict your understanding of the prompt and go berserk!

TOPIC FOR TODAY : FATHER/DAD/POP

My dad means the world to me. No we’ve not always had the best relationship. He’s an angry mess sometimes. But I still love him. Life hasnt been an easy ride for him.

He grew up poor, and then at age 10 he was sent to a reform school, as his mom couldnt look after him, while there, he was abused, physically and sexually.

He was there for 6 years. Then he left, and turned to alcohol to cope with his feelings. He abused alcohol for years. He married my mom when he was 27, my mom was 17. They’ve been together ever since.

My dad means the world to me. I can relate to him, and he has been good to me, he is usually the one I would turn to for advice on things.

He always looks after my dog for me when we go on holiday, he is a great cook. He has his issues, but dont we all?

I am so glad he’s my dad. He’s very special to me. A few years ago I almost lost him. He got sorosis of the liver and almost died from it. That was a very scary time for all of us.

He still drinks now but not as much as he did before. He cant drink as much as he’s gotten older he’s not able to drink as much.

  1. I’m glad you have a good relationship with your Dad, there are so many people that don’t, we are blessed. Will you be able to spend time with him on Father’s Day? Mine is 10 hours away by car, but we’ve sent the gift so he has something to open up from us…
