Happy birthday, dear mom. Birthday Wishes For Mom From Son: 1- You taught me how to walk so here I am running out of words to tell you how much I love you.
I didn’t know what to do when I get fucking terrified and I’m alone! I can’t run to my dad, I can only run to myself. As I got closer to the house the tension built upon me. I thought what the fuck am I doing? Why do I do this stupid shit to myself?
After talking for a while my mom got off the phone and started talking to me, I remember one distinct thing she said to me. She said that she wished my grandparents were alive and that if they were alive we would not go back. I questioned what she meant, but then it came to me. She did not want to go back to our home and have to deal with my dad. My mom did not want to listen to my dad anymore, she was tired of him and want to be some where he was not.
I snapped and complained about how tired I was and asked if she could do without one today. I told her I would bring her get one the next day. As usual, she did not argue and simply said yes, but my mom made me go get her one. She asked for such a simple thing, and I was too selfish to worry about her. I always took her for granted and also said I would do things the next day because I just did not want to worry about it that day.
Cassie got fed up with it and said ¨I think you forgot, but you was waiting on us ´fore you was waiting on this girl here, and we been waiting a good while now for you to get back.¨ Just think, you were in a store looking at guns and the person working kept skipping this little girl next to you. You see her open her mouth and say that. I don 't know about you but I would be astonished. A nine year old girl saying... that? She 's gotta be pretty brave.
I caught myself getting furious at even nominal things. I thought a lot about how I was going to survive without her being here. I thought I was moving on, until one day someone asked me, “ If you had one wish what would it be?” and the first thing I thought was to spend that one wish on my mother. A few hours after my mother passed, I decided to go home and take out all her clothes; I wanted to remind myself of all the great moments we had. I found her exquisitely shining coarse hair on her blue elegant dress.
The last time I decided to run away was on a Saturday. I remember saying that I was going through with my plan. Had my back pack stuffed with clothes along with my juice box and peanut butter & jelly sandwich set behind my room door now I was just waiting on the right time to leave. Let’s just say I watched plenty of movies where the child decided to run away so I thought I had It all figure out. My sisters and brothers laughed at me because I said I was running away.
“Get out!”, I said angrily. “Geez, you don 't have to yell like that.” My sister said calmly. “Ha ha ha!” My cousin laughed. “Did you see my story?” “That’s it! I 'm telling mom!” “Come on, let’s get out of here!” my sister said dragging my cousin along.
