Life would be wonderful if I just had Mama. She is nice to me and doesn’t yell and hit all the time. But the Daddy thing is only good for yelling and hitting. What an awful thing he is. Why can’t he just go away and leave us alone? You think I like being hit and yelled at all the time? Well I don’t! I don’t like it at all! My throat gets sore from sobbing and crying. My throat turns to a rock. All I can do is shake with sobs. The awful thing hits me and hits me, and yells and hits.
