    A Child Born From Sin, Part III

    This is the continuation of my memoir "A Child Born From Sin" For so long I've been treated like nothing, for so long I've been neglected, for so long I've been battered; all I want is to be loved by someone, but how can I when the people who are supposed to love me the most...

    If I Only Didn't Have A Heart...

    By the age of 10, my father was having severe mood swings (fine one minute, furious the next) at the drop of a hat, he was paranoid, and had a split personality. He sometimes displayed traits of being hyperactive (or something in that strain). Then one day he couldn't find a...

    If my dad knew that I said this about him, he would react in a bad way, but this is how I feel. My father, too, can be nice at times, but mostly we don't get along. I don't even want to know what he would think/say/do if he knew that I have occasional bisexual thoughts. I...

    Scumbag!

    My dad would have you think he's the father of the year material. But that is far from the truth. In reality, he's a leech who makes his wife go to work and earn money, which he claims as his own while spending it on garbage (****) instead of paying the bills. He's just nasty.
