Just Somebody I Used To Know...

My father is not the same man he once was. He went astray on my family for a long time.
He cheated on my mom twice and the last time he cheated was last year when my mom lost her dad. Since then, our family has only
increased the distance between one another. My mom is the only one who wants him here. He verbally abuses my sisters and myself and over the past two weeks, he is starting to become violent. I'm trapped in this jail until August, when I leave for college and turn 18. He has degraded my own sense of self- worth and my self- esteem. Some days, I can't even stand to look at myself in the mirror, reminded of the words he has used against me. It seems that now, he is becoming more violent. He hit my mom and almost hurt my siste. I'm terrified to leave for college, because my 12 year old sister will still be living with them. I feel 100% trapped. I'm just at a loss..
