I'm Confused

I'm confused

Isn't a mother supposed to make her daughter raise her siblings?

I'm confused

Don't fathers always abandon there children?

I'm confused

Isn't it normal for a 3 year old to be touched by her uncle?

Aren't lovers supposed to love on everyone?

What is infidelity?

Why does mommy kiss other men while daddy's gone?

Why did daddy say he never wanted us?

I'm confused

None of this is normal to you?

Not even sitting alone in your room crying every night because you can't do anything right?

Not even having scars on your arms that were blamed on that mean dog?

What about throwing up every meal so that you can feel something real that doesn't require your family calling you fat?

I'm confused, what is life like for you?
