Dear mother,

If you are reading this, it means I am gone. Do not be upset, and just try to remember all of the good times that we shared when I was younger. I have lived with you for thirteen years, and during those years, I have had some happy times and some sad times. When my father died when I was 6, I felt closer to you than ever. Then Laura died. Sometimes, I thought that you would rather have her back and me gone. That's the way it is, I think.

You may start to think about where I am, and how I am gone. Are you thinking I was kidnapped? No, I have not been kidnapped. I left of my own free will. The reason for that is simple: I am sick and tired of the abuse I have suffered night after night when you come home drunk. I know you miss Laura, but you do not have to take it out on me. It is clear to me that you do not love me any more, so I am out of your life. Now it's just you. 7 years ago, there were four of us, but then the day that Laura killed herself, I knew it was your fault. She could not take the abuse any more, and that is why she took the easy way out.

I, on the other hand, have plans for the future. I want to live the rest of my life, and I want to forget the start of my life. I want to be a success. Do not worry about me, because I will be fine. I will say this again- remember the times when you did not choose the bottle over your children, and remember the day on the beach, before that awful night with my father. Finally, just remember, if you love me, you will let me go, because I cannot live with you any more.

With love?

David
