    Politics :(

    But, I Can't.

    My father refuses to put anything before his almighty crack rock and his almighty *****.  Not even his own children.  When he got out of prison, I made sure I was the first person there to see him.  His girlfriend was out getting ********** and smoking crack. ...

    ...but my father is a coward.

    He made mistakes as we all do, but instead of trying his best to protect his own from these mistakes, he blamed the very ones that loved him. He has taken everything beautiful in his life and has painted it with hate. He has bullied his children and beat every wife he's had. But...
