Father and son sat down to have a chat. They haven’t done so in years.
No surprise that it all ended in tears. The father was fifty, the son was nineteen.
They argued about the son’s college, ambition, future.
It was emotional and tense. Neither wanted to lose.
The father never had his way with his son. Yet ironically, the father had better foresight.
What he predicted, came true. And it was never a good outcome.
A prophet with no control over destiny.
The son’s greatest regret was to believe that he put blame on his father.
When it was in fact, sheer foolishness, and over-ambition.
Well, that day, he learnt a lesson.
A lesson to listen.
