Pain letter to my stepmother

Pain letter to my stepmother All was well before you came into my life, Here you came like lion in sheep skin, Pretending to care while you are not, I was wrong to think you are right replacement of my late mother My father hacked into your net, Until you get child of your own with my father, Now the game has changed, I have changed to be the slave in my father’s house, What used to be happiness is now changed to agony, I long seen what is called parental care, I have to fend for myself if I need to live well, I no longer perform well at school, and I left school, I tried many times to bear your attitudes and treatment, Not until you remind me that you are not my mother, And that my mother is in grave long dead, There was no use to remind me of these that I know, Now look my life has turned upside down, I have lost hope for my future, I have given my life to drinking and drugs, so now addicted, I have to sleep with guys to get what is called coin like I’m a prostitute, I am not sure if I am HIV positive or not, I start every morning with problems in my mind, Drinking and drugs became a temporal solution to me, Not the day I received a severe beating from you assisted by my father, For the money that I did not even steal, Stepmother I have long forgiven you, I wish me or you must leave this world for sake, Especially me to rest my soul, Now this year I am trying to pick up my pieces, Going back to school trying to focus on future, Here you came and call me names, You went far until you call me drunkard and prostitute, And that I will not succeed, While you know that you are the main cause of all these, Before I could lose my breath, Oh please, that’s enough…. By the tear in my heart, and the grave of my dead mother, I swear god will deal with you one day, And I wish I never lived in this earth and……. ……………………….(Burst into tears)…………………………………….
