Place in the Heart

Sitting on the bench, my kids playing in the park
There are many empty park benches.
Yet one mother sits next to me.
She is pregnant and has a baby
“I see you a lot here”
I smile
She continues, “So tell me, have one child, she is all  my world, and I am pregnant, how can you love another child? How do you have more room in your heart?”
I smile
It’s beyond the the rules of physics I answer
When the second child has born, a new in room createdat your haert.
But not at the expense of the existing room and without heart expands.
that’s how it is
She smiles
Stroking her belly
Thank she says
And going
The girls come to me
Dad, what this woman want?
She wants to study physics, I smile
The girls also laugh

Date with my wife

Coffee shop.
She sits in front of me,
Struggling like me to look for topic of conversation
12 years of marriage
We finally have a moment alone
And we have nothing to do with it
I know all about her

Meeting with wife
I ask myself
If  I could
Would i stay or run away?

She smiles
Takes her mobile
She’s going to run away
Instead, she handed me the mobile
Check this application
She says

Get to know again
Suddenly ..
A new world opens

Another day at the park

Sitting in the park
The girls  are playing
A mother comes, with phone in hand
Her kid hanging from her dress

I drink coffee and watch the trees
The woman suddenly shouts: cockroach!
She grabs me by my shirt

From afar my daughter looks at us
She does not see the danger
Lady, I try to calm her
It’s just a bug

Kill him! She tells me
I smile, I can not
Kill him! She hysterical
I know you, you’re in here every day, like you do not have any job at all
So do something useful in your life
And kill this cockroach

She shakes me, screaming into my ear
My daughter arrives,
Picks up the cockroach in her hand and takes him away from this woman

My savior
I thank her with a wink
She smiles and asks
Can you build with me a sand castle?

The day that I quit my job

A man is sitting in his office
Yesterday he promised himself
That tomorrow will not be the same
But tomorrow has come
The coffee is the same coffee
And in a month from now or maybe a little less
He will not remember this day
And the day will follow
From time to time he misses
Days he was simple worker
But then the salary was not something
And now he has “good work”
He longs to change
But it is impossible
“You can not do what you want more”
People say to him
“Now you have a family and a mortgage, and more ….”
From time to time it is burning in his stomach
And immediately turn off
Maybe it will take courage
Maybe it will happen next
Then he would remember this day
Meanwhile
Typing at the computer
Looking for comfort

My 60th birthday

Sitting on a bench at the park

My children are standing in front of me

Sitting next to me – my father

He says to me:

“What a waste, you should have learn programming, computers”

Kids say: Dad, Come play with us

I jump, play, roll with them on the grass

“What will you do when you’re 60 years old?” He shouts to me

“I have no idea, for 60th birthday” I answer

He is angry

“So, what do you have to say?” He asks angrily

“Dad,” I pause the game.

“Come play with us”

My role in life

Every person and his role in life
I am simple worker
One day  the boss came to me and told me that if I behave and think like a boss
at the end I will be a boss
And the same day
My wife told me that if I behave like a man and think like a man
Maybe at the end of the day I will be a man
Well,
The next day I went to the boss and told him that I think he is wrong in many things

and I told my wife that today she  preparing the food

I found myself without a job, sleeping on the couch
I love my role

Big changes

It is hard for people to accept something new.
I don’t have any steady job. This statement can undermines anyone in front of me.
Some would raise an eyebrow, some asks what’s my problem. The first sentence of people which I haven’t seen for ages is: “Hey, we heard that you’re not working, is  it right?”
My wife loves her job, she is a career woman, I like to sit in the park, watch my daughters playing.
If the situation were reversed, my wife was sitting at the park and I was working nobody would ask what her problem is.
But the situation is not reversed. And until something will change. I sit in the playground.
