It’s been a couple of days since posting. I’ve been locked in my room.
Escaping the parents’ fighting. Constant bickering and flinging insults. Name calling. Blaming each other for every wrong ever done since the beginning of time.
I went to my room and shut the door and stuck my headphones on so tight no sound could penetrate. Not a peep nor one tweet. I shut my eyes to the view.
I thought they were smarter than me. I thought they were grown ups. I thought they wanted the best for me and my brother. I thought….
I don’t want to be anything like them when I grow up. I don’t want to grow up. Anyway, I’m pretty sure I was adopted.
