Growing up without a role model, it wasn’t easy, let me tell ya, but, I finally became, the man I wanted to become, nothing like that DEADBEAT who’d abandoned us when we were younger that’s for certain, oh no!!!
It was hard, growing up, not having a good role model, and when your mother brings home the assortments of LOSERS she’s dating, and, none of them were ever, good enough for her, based off of our (my siblings’ and mine!!!) opinions, but, she needed someone, to feel that loneliness, that void in her life…

Finally became, the man I wanted to become, thanks to the good example that one of my school teachers set for me, he had that authoritarian fatherly feel to him, would correct me when I’d made mistakes in the course, as well as in life too, and, he has, a good, a well-rounded family, and, after that picnic he’d invited me to go on with his family, I’d made up my mind, to grow up to be just like him!
It took me, a very long time, as I’d taken, many shortcuts, several wrong turns in life, but now, I’d, steered myself in the right directions, set my life straight, thanks to that teacher long ago, for being a role model, helping me, to finally become, the man I wanted to become.

Finally became, the man I wanted to become, that, is something you will NEVER know, because you will NEVER be good enough for me, or my child, and I’d made up my mind, on not loving you (‘cuz I have the right, to give out my affections, to whoever it is that I see fit??? And, you are not it!!!).
Finally became, the man I wanted to become, it’s this, long and winding road I’d traveled down, as I traveled down the road, I couldn’t, see an end in sight, but, I just, kept following the roads, and, now, I’d reached, the finishing lines…
