I’m not supposed to be up this late, but Daddy’s too loud.
by Emiria Henry
16– Finally quiet in the house. It’s not home, Dad would have to be there for that. Momma’s happy though. Good for her.
15– My mom gets tired of yelling all the time. She tells my dad to go and not to come back. He cries…of course he does.
14– New school. No familiar faces. I wish my mom knew what I went through in a day. I stay strong for her, not him.
13– I don’t feel any better. Everything’s supposed to be different but it isn’t. When do I get to be happy?
12– I wake up scared. Daddy’s stumbling into the house. Momma cries and screams. She’s not the scary one.
11– Daddy doesn’t have to work as much. I love him so much.
10– I have a best friend now. She promised she’ll be here for me.
9– Am I a burden to them?
8– Still can’t breathe. No one needs to know.
7– My sister’s happy. She gets to go to high school. That seems fun. She won’t have to be here.
6– Daddy had an accident. Mommy says he’s fine. I guess…
4– I’m not supposed to be up this late, but Daddy’s too loud. He won’t tell his friends to leave. Mommy doesn’t say anything.
3– I don’t see Daddy as much but I know he loves me. Even with the new addition to the family. Love you, baby brother.
1– I can’t breathe…
0– I open my eyes for the first time and smile. She’s beautiful.
