Home to My House

Few words said.

Few words expressed.

Few words depressed.

And Few words are restless.

All in one, a true package of emotions.

Yes I am talking about none other than my Super dad

  • The intelligence of Batman,

  • The morality of Superman,

  • Agility and durability of Captain America and Speed of Flash.

You know when these traits come all together, we're definitely talking about our dear dad, who is no less actually than a superhero.

A family is like a tree, where we are the fruits, mom is the trunk and daddy is the root. Stronger the roots, sweeter becomes the fruits and long lives the tree, uptight and upright.

As a child, I always have a dream of a huge house with lots of luxuries in it but now I have a changed perception. Now if I were to build a house, I'd have my dad's arms as walls. His eyes as windows. His smile as the front door. His heart as the fireplace. And his soul as my light in that house.

I'd place my faith knowing that I had finally found a home that will feel the same amount of security and safety I feel when I am around my dad.

A few years ago my father saved us from a bunch of goons making him a superhero.

When I lost confidence in myself, he still had faith in me just like the roots have upon the yellowing leaves.

Once when I was angry with him and had a petty squabble, he stood on his knees and pacified me in front of my friends making me realize that he's the home to My House!

Now you understand why the metaphors used here are so relatable.

Well, I can keep on writing all day and night when the topic is Dad. But the irony is that words are a constraint.
