I'm tired, I can't take anymore. I'm dangerous.

I'm dangerous. I'm tired. I have lived life fully. I will tell it to you. If you found this story it is by no mistake. I had a good family. A younger brother, a dad and a mom. We were like any normal U.S family. But we had issues. Problems. It didn't happen just one morning when we woke up. It happened gradually.


My dad was an alcoholic and my mom was doing drugs. My dad had such a temper, he would hit my younger brother. He had ADHD. This is one of the conversations they had.

"You little idiot!"

"Why are you hitting me, I'm not doing anything," my brother cried sobbingly.

"I wish you were never born. You're disabled. Not a real person."

"Please don't do this to me!"

"It's for your own good you dog."


That night my brother who was six, went out on his bike and went around the park near our house. It was 9:00 pm. I look at his grave on which was engraved, "Strong in heart" and he was strong, never meant to suffer like he did. A truck ran over him and moments later he died. The ambulance called my parents after the driver called the hospital. My dad said, "Let the little animal suffer alone." I ran to the park. I was nine. That's when I gradually came to be known as murderous. I killed my father in a torturing manner. To let him know all the pain he made my brother suffer through. He had so many chances to save my brother and he didn't, all the money on alcohol and drugs for my mother. I made her suffer too. For not stopping my father. No. He's not my father and I'm not his daughter. Living my life on the run. Now, I want to know about you. My time's done but… I will always live on.

That was very dramatic. It's a sad story to see, that some people aren't treated how they deserve and they can go on to repay that. I really enjoyed reading your story, and seeing that side of it.
