A Young Child's Thoughts


When you're a child nothing seems to hurt. You think the worst thing that can happen to you is misplacing your favorite toy. But welcome to the real world. My childhood was far from flowers, happiness, dreams and ponies. Try crying yourself to sleep. But being wakened by yelling. having to hear your parents scream so loud at each other the windows rattle. Finally silence...did they kill each other? No I'm not that lucky. Waking up the next morning and going thru the same thing again...Wake up, eat, yell, be yelled at, hear yelling, cry, sleep, repeat. Welcome to my world...The real world..
