I never thought this would have happened. Why did my life have to turn this way? Those were the thoughts in my head when I found out my parents were going to get a divorce. Why did it have to happen to me? I was a cheerful, ten year old boy who never fretted about anything until that point in my life.
As I sat there for two days, I wondered what the house was going to look like, what the neighbors would be like, and how the schools were. I never had to think of these things before. Two days later, my parents came and picked me up. On the way to my new home, my parents explained that it was not like the house we previously lived in. That statement scared me because I did not want to live in a smaller house nor did I want to share a room with either of my sisters.
I knocked on the door than she opens it, she saw me with a surprising look on her face, and never thought that I couldn't make it. But as she invited me into her house I stood there, I knew there is something missing, it a birthday present. I told her I got nothing to give, but she doesn’t mind, all she wanted is for me to attend her birthday that it. She was so excited, even me too but I still fear that my parents would beat me up if they knew that I sneak out from the house. But before 9 o'clock I have to go back home before my parents comes back into my room.
That feeling when every time I pray to God, the first thing that I will say is “Lord, thank you for giving Him to me. I am so happy that I have him in my life.” I felt so happy and I thought that we will last forever. I used to think that love comes only to the right person, that what you feel for the person is so unique and you will never feel that feeling to another
“ I used to play golf with him.” Dad said There's probably one reason why he’s here he wants to come back home, or he wants money. He didn’t have a lot of money so that what he probably came here for. Then after the party I brought dad back to the house. He ran to Michael and Chuckie. Then Chuckie screeched, “ DADDY’’ I pleaded, “ You have to show us you want to come back.” Michael looked at me and
I’m still kind of resentful and angry for something they didn’t have control over. To fill the void, which was missing the only place I’ve ever known, I devised a plan at the beginning of this school year. I was going to live with my Grandmother back in my home state, Rhode Island, and attend school there as well. I was so unhappy that I wanted to live over 2,000 miles away from my family. The only people that have always been there for me.
Some people reminisce the past, live in the present, and dream for the future. My childhood is something to look back at. Some things could have been better, but for the most part they were exceptionally good. I truly wish I continue to focus on the good parts of my childhood.The teenage years are what the majority of people say to run from, but I say that you can learn from all the mistakes you made, and will continue to make. Although, I’m still in this stage of my life, there are things I can already say that I will remember until the day I die.
Although my dad was physically present, he was not mentally. His behavior had a negative effect on everyone in the family, but I knew that my mom was the one who suffered the most. I admire her for her endurance and patience, which is why I can depend on her. I remembered innocently asking my mom one day, “Why don’t you ever yell at Dad to stop going gambling so he can start spending more time with us?” She calmly replied, “Your dad will not listen to me, which is why you need to continue to work hard. You are still young right now, but when you grow up and become responsible, Dad will listen to you out of respect.” Those words stuck with me and they still do to this day.
