Some Peace of Mind

When I look into my father eyes, I see how sad he feels to see that his only daughter has yet to make it in life. My dad is now 66 years old.

The plans I’m making to pass the GED test is my secret. No one knows about it. Thanks to God, I’ve been able to have good jobs, however I know for a fact that I need to stop procrastinating and get my GED. I have potential, but as time passes I am starting to see myself in a negative way. My brain is not the same as it used to be. I am so forgetful lately, and I’m ashamed of who I’ve become. I want some peace of mind, and to be able to help humanity. It’s time to reposition myself for a better future.

I dropped out of school in the 7th grade, because I was abused by my brother to the point of having my front teeth knocked out. After that, when I went to school, the students all laughed at me. Since that day, I’ve never gone back. My dad never knew how to help me, because I was too dark. He just doesn’t have it in him to give.
