I really hate the person you turned me into. I was only seven when you showed mama and me your true colours. She was unemployed and only depended on my grant money. Sometimes I would go to school with no pocket money, sometimes I would go to bed with an empty stomach.

Dad, I really hate the person you turned me into. Why did you run away from me the moment I needed you most? Each day I wet my pillow with tears, all because of you.

I wonder what wrong I have done to deserve such a disgraceful childhood.

I really need you Dad, there are questions I would like you to give me answers to. I long for your love, comfort and most importantly, I want you to show me the way of life.
