Graduation Let Down
This was one of the most important days in my life. I was graduating from Propel Braddock Hills High School. And all I wanted was for everyone that I cared most for, to be there. Its graduation day and I’m excited! I’m making sure that my hairs cut, my outfits right, making sure I’m all ready for my big day.
I get a text from my step dad saying. “Son, I’m so proud of you and everything you have accomplished and I’m extremely proud to call you my son keep doing an amazing job at succeeding in life love always your father”. I read that and it gave me the biggest smile ever until I read the text that followed stating, “Son I’m so sorry but I will not be able to attend to come see you walk across the stage like I promised and I am truly filed with deep sorrow because of this, I hope you can forgive me love your father”. When I read that I was so hurt because he promised to be there and he lied to me. He couldn’t even tell me in person or on the phone, he wrote me a text instead.
To be honest I’m used to him not keeping his word to me or any of my siblings. I just thought that he knew how important this day was to me, and how badly I wanted him there. But I guess some things will never change
Even though he wasn’t able to make it, I had everyone else that I loved and cared about there to watch me receive my High School Diploma. I walked across that stage, with my head held high, tears rolling down my face. Proud of myself for achieving one of my biggest accomplishments. Even though my step dad I was not able to attend, I was just thankful for my Momma and other loved ones for being there for me on my special day
