It’s Been Five Years Now

My mom passed away five years ago and I still wonder if I was a disappointment to her.

A baby is barbers chair crying.
The author getting his first hair cut. Note the prescription bottle in my mother's right hand…probably valium.

My mother had four children. I am one of them.

I sometimes wonder if I am the reason I don’t really want kids. I wouldn’t wanna raise a child like me.
