THE CONVERSATION


father and son

Daddy, why do you live here?
Because my job is here.
But, why not somewhere else?
Because what I do is important to the people here?
But, why wouldn’t you be important to other people somewhere else?
Because there are other people in other places that are just as important to the people there.

Daddy, why do I do wrong sometimes?
Because you have a choice, and sometimes you choose the wrong thing.
But, why do I choose the wrong thing?
Because you don’t know any better, or because you think it’s right at the time.
But, why don’t you stop me?
Because if you don’t make mistakes, you’ll never learn.

Daddy, why do you love me?
Because you’re my child.

Daddy, why do you know so much?
Because I’ve been around a long, long time.
Daddy, why should I believe everything you say?
Because I said so.
