    Sad Daddy

    ...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...
