    Sometimes I really want to call you

    and tell you how damaged I am. How it still hurts when you say that you didn't want to have a girl, especially someone like me. I know you think I am stupid, weak, unworthy and don't really see me as a daughter. After all, you only remember me when you want to show something to...

    Thank You...Thank You.

    .. Thank You for keeping your word, If it weren't for you, My voice wouldn't have been heard, Indeed I cherish you... I saw myself in a new time, Where Love needn't be a crime, I saw myself holding the hands of the lost, Going yonder the pathway of Truth and lies...

    I hate you a lot of the time,

    you make life for me quite difficult...I know you love me but stop inviting me over or complaining that I don't visit ...I'm 19 how am I supposed to grow and learn to do things myself and deal with the world with treating me like a 3 year old!

    My father is/was a mixed bag. Far from perfect, he beat both my brother and I, and he taught us to fight back physically when people hurt or teased us. His discipline was wildly inconsistent, sometimes hugs and understanding when a beating wouldn't have been unexpected...

    Dad. In a way I want to say thank you.

    I spent so many years hating you and blaming you. The physical abuse didn't help me.. I flinch any time anyone raises their arms or start kicking.. I guess in a way it helped me hate abuse and hate seeing people being attacked. I know I will step up if I see anyone being...
