And They Resented Me For It

My father and mother were 17 and 16 when she got pregnant. My mother never graduated from high school, and my father turned down a scholarship to start working in construction. They got married once my father turned 18 and graduated high school. My mothers mother gave parental consent for my mother to marry, but my fathers parents refused, so they had to wait until he was 18, and my mother was 7 months pregnant on their wedding day. They fought bitterly, until they divorced when I was 6. My father moved an hour away, and I got to see him every other weekend. When I was 7, he abandoned me at a public pool. My mother blamed me, and I guess it is my fault in some cosmic way, simply for existing. My mother became abusive, and often told me how she wished she'd made different decision and not dug the hole she did. She told me I was useless and a mistake. She may have been a better mother if she was older. I don't have much of a relationship with her now, and I wish I could have been born to better, older parents.
