You’re in a room all by yourself; theres no one to talk to, no one to help you understand what is going on the outside of this door. The TV is loud, you still can hear every groan and cry on the other side of that door. You can’t help but wonder, what’s going on, why is this happening, what can I do to help? But you can’t help, no one can really help. As a child, I was the quietest child out of all my siblings. I kept to myself, didn’t really bother anybody. Not to mention, I never told anybody how I felt about situations.
I guess you can say Im very mysterious person. I don’t really explain my life to people. Not that I’m embarrassed about it, im just not an open book. I believe my past is dark, and people wont believe that my past is what my past really is. But, all I can do is learn from it and grow from it. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, he had a lot going in his head. My parents were not together, and I lived with my dad. Plus, my grandmother came and took care of my brother and me when my dad was gone.
It seemed to me like everything was all happy and joyful living with my dad. But I didn’t know what was really going on. I remember one afternoon a bunch of police officers came by my apartment and asking if my father was home but he wasn’t. I believe thats when I knew something wasnt right. Soon after I would hear cries, groans, and grunts coming from a different room. What I soon discovered a person with bruises on her body. It was my grandmother. At this time of my life I never really discussed this with anyone, Its not like I wanted to distract my father.
If people asked me who is my father and what is he like. I would tell them my dad is this person, and I dont know what hes like because I never lived with him. Because of this incident that I have witnessed, my fathers relationship with me has been difficult. I didnt know this until later in life but my dad was not all there due to all this illegal activity that was happening, which caused him to be the way he was. The events that happened in my life, have made me the person that I am today. If I wasn’t from this I wouldn’t be in this school in this state.
I would probably be still be living in California. My life, as I know it, wouldn’t be the same. Maybe the exact opposite. I have learned from these events, In the sense that violence is not the key to everything. It can get you into a lot of trouble. I have also learned that you shouldnt accused people right away until you get the full story, from both sides. he events that happened made me the way I am. If you take the events that happened, out of my life, then I would not be the person who I am today.
