    Whoever You Are......

    I hated that I never knew you. I hated that I was always teased about it. I hated that my family was ****** up and broken. I hated that you knew perfectly well who I was and where I lived but never bothered to come see me. I hated you. But now I don't. Even if I may never know...

    I Forgive Him But He'll Never Know

    I went through a lot with my birth father, and while it wasn't as bad as other people have had it, it was bad enough for me to stop talking to him. He put myself and my mother through so much, and I hated him with every ounce of my being for the longest time. But now, I forgive...
