Write a letter to your parents telling them what's going on in your life... that they should know about and don't
There are a lot of things that you think you know about me, but you don't. You try to tell me how to dress, but you know what? I'm sick of it. What you don't realize is that these are my decisions and you need to back off.
I also think that you don't have any respect for me, because you come into my room, touch anything you want, and you don't even put things back in their place. You are really starting to piss me off by doing that.
I love you but sometimes you make my life more hectic than it needs to be. I think you are a procrastinator and you know that ain't how I roll. Momma, you better shape up and get on top of your responsibilities.
Things aren't that peachy perfect. I'm sad and doing wild things with my sister. I'm out there doing drugs and I've had a miscarriage three times. I do this stuff because I feel that you hate me.
Remember how you mistreated my mother because you always had to have your way? How could you hurt a gentle soul like my mother? Guess what? You're the reason my sisters and brothers don't have a mommy now. Sometimes I wish you'd just rot in hell for the shame and disgrace you put my dear, sweet mother though.
As I grow older, I see you for the trifling man that you are. You know what, Daddy? I'm not even going to trip, because what goes around comes around. Daddy, I hate you and I figure I should write it down on paper before you do me like you did to Mommy.
Your Wonderful Daughter
