    So I ran away a couple of days ago,

    and they made me come back (they= police and family). They said they were gonna change and so far that's bullshit. I am leaving when I turn 17 whether they like it or not, they cannot make me stay. I am done with my mother telling me that I am a mean and ugly ***** . She says...

    Hardly Any Memories..yeah Right.

    It's the wood that scared me the most. She would use it especially for me, and the wooden spoon was hung on a tack on the wall embroided with my name on it. I enjoyed school because it was safe. I could relax at school. The walk home terrified me though. Turning the last corner...

    When people found out I was gay,

    they weren't so nice. I was jumped at school and would come home bruised up, they would call me names, and even my friends wouldn't talk to me, but one thing I've learned is you just gotta pick yourself up and keep going.

    Abuse is never easy to talk about.

    you always think nobody will believe you or that you'll seem over dramatic. The truth is, it really doesn't matter if anyone believes you. At some point you have to get up and stand up for yourself. Speak out even if you're legs are shaking. Nobody should have so much control...

    "crying Is For Babies"

    Today I was sitting talking to my father, just about random stuff, when he started saying the most hurtful things... He said that I need to stand on my own two feet instead of living at home - which is really unfair as my mum and dad persuaded me to come back home. He always...

    I know I disappoint him

    why else would he say those things to me? I try to do what I'm told, but how can I do all that when I'm taking care of our child and what you ask of me is harmful to our unborn child? When are you going to wake up and be the man I fell in love with, I just want you to love me...

    Two years later & true colors are surfacing

    above the beautifully polished man you presented to be. Here I am, once again fooled, foolish, and weakened. There is no amount of sorry that will heal the hurt I carry day to day.
