“At least I’m not going to die” I say these words repeatedly in my head. Now you may be asking who I am or what was happening to me that would make me have to keep saying something like that? I wasn’t in combat or even in a life or death situation but in my eyes it was life and death. In fact, when I first started to say these words I was not even an adult yet. I stared to say these words when I was still just a child. I started to say, “at least I’m not going to die” when I was about three or four years old to get through my fathers abuse, and this is my story. Many times I thought I would die and many times I prayed for death itself. To say I was abused would be an understatement. I suffered pain and torture from the one person who was supposed to protect me. The house I grew up in was filled with years of abuse, years of suffering. You will read things that will scare you to, things that will shock you. I lived with a dark secret I had to keep from everyone. To me this is as scary as any horror story out there. To me it is even more frightening because its all true. If you met my dad you would never suspect anything. He acted like a normal father but behind closed doors the true monster lived. In the pages you will see a child grow up knowing that if I was alone with my own father he would hurt me. As I got older the pain got worse. It was a life of physical and mental abuse. As a boy I was told not to tell anyone or he would hurt me worse. I prayed to a God who never answered me and with a mother who acted like he was the perfect father and husband. I grew up and watched my friends wondering what happened behind there doors. To look at me now you would never know or even imagine I was constantly abused until I left school. I look like a normal father and a loving husband but even today when I close my eyes at night I can still feel the pain I suffered under his roof. When I shower every morning I can still see the scars left by his hands. When I go to his house the marks in the house can still be seen. I lived in a world where the only thing I knew for sure was I would be hurt by my dad any chance he got. He took away my childhood away and replaced it with years of pain. Even to this day there is a child inside who is still terrified of there dad. I tried for many years to have my father talk to me to tell me why??? I just wanted him to tell me why he did what he did. I called wrote letters even went to his house for years and years just wanting a normal relationship with my father but until he finally apologizes I cannot move forward. I once told him that if I did to my son what he did to me I would spend the rest of my life trying to apologize but he just sat there like it was no big deal. I do not understand what kind of person can do the unspeakable things to there own flesh and blood and not be eaten up by the guilt?? So what do I want? I want my childhood back but since that cannot ever happen then I want a father who I can call or better yet he will call me up just to say he loves me. Sadly I still love my father. Sadly I finally realize that he does not love me...
