i come home my room is trashed
my dad yells at me and shoves me into the wall
he swings and hits me in my face
i crumble, my face is hurting and im wondering why is he doing this
I stand wobbling, I swing back at him
he swings again and i duck and shove him back
he hits me and yells where is it
i fall confuses, hurting, where is what, it hurts to even speak
her note, where is her note. I yell I don't have it
he starts pounding my head and he screams fight back.
his voice fades away and I am lost, my mind is racing.
I wake up in the hospital like it was a bad dream like none of it was real
