There once lived a man,
not too long ago,
he was a happy man,
he had a wife, he had some kids,
a good job, a great job, it paid very well.
This is his story.
It was a usual Wednesday,
He was at work
And his boss walked over to him
he said, "I'm sorry, we're gonna have to let you go."
"You've been very good for business these past few years, but, it's too expensive."
"Financially we can't afford you anymore."
"alright", he said, and he went home.
He packed his stuff and he went home.
Now, seeing as he went home early, his wife and kids weren't home yet.
He sat there, waiting.
He thought about everything that had just happened.
Losing his job, at this age. He wasn't even that old!
He wondered what his wife would say, and what his children would think of him.
A tear rolled down his cheek.
His wife and his children, they have come home.
He's made up his mind. He waits until dinner, thinking.
After dinner, his child went to bed, his wife is here, watching some tv.
There's an article on the news about how people are losing their job more and more often.
His wife looks at him.
She says "Wow honey! Thank god you're not one of those, those men that lose their job. You have a steady job we have a steady life, a beautiful kid. Hell we have a second one on the way! We can do anything, I love you honey!"
His vision went red.
He woke up an hour later.
Blood on his hands.
He got up, saw the knife laying besides him
He saw his wife laying dead on her bed
He thought to himself, "What the FUCK have I done.."
He went to his child's room.
There she lays, sleeping.
Gently, he touched her, he stroked her cheek.
He woke her up. "Nancy, Nancy! We gotta go!"
"Dad, why is there blood on your hand?"
"Nancy don't worry about that we gotta go! Come on, I'll start the car get ready!"
He went to the car and started it. Waited for his daughter who went in the car.
The drove for about an hour before stopping at the lake.
He said, "You know, Nancy, sometimes even adults cry. Not all grown-up people have the ability to stay strong forever, and sometimes, they gotta do really important stuff."
He looked at his daughter one more time.
He held her hand.
"I love you Nancy, but this is something I have to do."
He started the engine, squints his eyes.
Squeezes out every last droplet.
And then he drove off,
