Letters from the sons pt 2

Dear dad,
I'm only 14 
Diagnosed with a disease 
That was eating deep at me 
I suffer from depression 
I always cry myself to sleep
Mom tried to kill herself 
Devil let my family be 
Dear dad 
I'm only 13 
Anger out burst 
Scaring all the other teens 
Bullied in school 
I slowly went insane 
Plotted my revenge but it only 
brought more pain
Dear dad 
I'm only 12 now
My heart feels weaken
I barely see u on the weekends
You had another son 
And now what's done is done 
Back then I was number 2 so 
I'll never be number one 
Dear dad 
I'm only 11 
At times I wanna die 
I do not understand why 
Whenever I would see you
I would always run and hide 
I was truly scared of you 
They just thought that I was 
Dear dad 
Now I'm only ten 
Already I'm being judged by 
the color of my skin
The black kids call me white 
and the white kids call me 
Identity crisis 
Can u help
Me get on track 
Dear dad 
Now I'm only 9
When you would get to see me 
you would never spend the 
U would drop
Me at a addicts house 
Where she would snort her 
Have sex with random men 
While we would play outside 
Dear dad
now I'm only 8
The babysitter is abusive 
This wasn't the first time I was 
You would leave me with 
To go ball or out on dates 
This the reason now and 25 I'm 
filled with all this hate
