The Unknowing Reach of Hate

You shut up.

You sound just like your father.

Do you want to be like him?

No you shut up.

Don’t fucking talk to me.

I hate you.

She stands tall and threatening in the

mother’s face.

FUCK YOU. You’re crazy.

The mother cowers but never lets her forget.

That’s enough.

Do you want to be like your mother?

You act just like her.

You’re right that is enough. Fuck you.

I’m outta here.

You’re such an asshole.

She nearly misses the father’s face and

punches through a glass window.

She is twelve.

She hopes to never be like either one of

them.

Misery seeps from their skin and lives in

their blank stares.

Do they think their misery is unseen?

That the hate just cuts through each other?

She hears it all.

She feels it all.

It pushes her hand through the glass.

Relief.

I am a 43 year old mom of three. I have been raising my kids by myself for nearly 10 years. They are and always will be my first priority, but this blog is about me. And you. My goal is to share to heal myself and in that process I hope to help others do the same.
