I did it again.
I made father angry.
I don't know what I did wrong, but it must have been something.
Why else would he hit me so hard?
Mother doesn't seem to care.
She's passed out on the couch,
After a night of drinking alone.
Father won't stop...
Am I going to die?
Somebody, fix me! I don't want to disappoint them anymore.
Maybe if I was more like him...
Maybe if I do what my father does...
Maybe then...
Maybe then I won't be hated so much!
