"I didn’t ask to be born."
It’s a cliché, but it’s true.

No one asks to be born,
I didn’t.
You didn’t.
My daughter didn’t.

I asked for my daughter to be born.
It was my request, my choice.

My responsibility, my joy.

And I don’t think for one second
That I’m doing her any favours
By trying to be the best dad I can be.

My choice, my responsibility,

My joy.
