A Glimpse into My Journey

One step at a time.

I tried

I tried to give you kindness.

I tried to forgive you.

I tried to move on.

I tried to think about all the good you’ve done.


But you kept telling us those lies with your blank expressions.

You kept wanting more.

You kept displaying your dissatisfaction.

You kept wasting your hard-earned money.


I really do try, but sometimes you make it so hard for us, Dad.
