    I Just...

    I dunno. I've always wanted to be a dad. I have always wanted to provide a child with a more loving home than I had. Maybe I'm insane? I dunno. I just know I would like to be a father.

    Drifting On A Memory- As I lay here in this

    hotel, I can't help but recall the past. Mostly of my life in the states with an old friend and my kid niece. I say niece, but really we're not blood related. I just thought it'd be awkward if she asked me what she was to call me and I had no answer. So uncle it is. Her...

    Greatest Wish

    I can't quite explain it. I know it sounds odd, saying it and sounding so sure at a, relatively, young age, which is why I've never mentionef it to those who know me face-to-face. All I know is that deep down in my heart of hearts, I long for the day that I become a father. To...

    The Best If Possible.

    I really hope I'll be the best father ever one day.I guess the fact that I missed my dad's affection as a kid made me want a nice,loving family and give my children everything that I've deprived.

    I really would love to be a father one day.

    Definitely on my list of dreams. It might be far off in the future, but the idea of having a child to love, to take care of....to just watch them grow up and get all "Papa Wolf" when they're at that dating age...brings a huge smile to my face. I can just see myself tucking...

    I Don't Know When It Started.
