But what was it that propelled me this far?
I almost forgot, my God!

I had grown used to open hatred of my papa and didn't need the love that i never got to move on.

Have you ever been in love? The lady asked me.
"No!! "why? She wanted to know.
" If my father could find nothing about me to love, i doubt any man will" I had thought.
