i can’t breathe.
It feels like you’re the hand holding my head underwater.
Why aren’t you letting me breathe?
i have tried, so hard, to play the role i never signed up for.
i never knew it included being dragged
deeper underwater with only the oxygen in my lungs to exist.
Swim deeper. Live.
We always hear about children disappointing their parents. But what about when parents disappoint their children? My parents should have started the brainwashing earlier if they wanted a perfect, religious daughter. Conform, they said.
Now I see my near future years living in caution. I think its sad when you’ve caused your child to fear you. I think its sad when you’ve caused your child to believe that the only way she’ll start living is when she has enough to get away.
