GREAT Poem, and I can relate to it on a VERY personal level, actually.

I AM struggling, and I WILL keep holding on, and I certainly Hope that things will get better.
(Then again, I suppose they couldn't get much worse, lol!)

Try to stay strong. Believe me, my dad is crazy too. When i have to be around him i picture better times with him so it doesn't seem so bad. It'll get better eventually, that's what i tell myself

Thanks for the support!

When I first came here to Paint, I was surprised at how kind and understanding almost everyone here was, as my dad's always saying that people are generally pretty nasty towards each other, and untrustworthy.
(I'd say he's nastier and more untrustworthy than ANYONE I've seen here, lol!)

if I could guess, people on here are what you could call (for lack of a better word) an "outcast" As an outcast, i personally tend to understand other peoples struggles more than your average joe.

Also, if i could guess again your dad was raised by someone who has had a negative experience with their life, or has had one himself, thus resulting in the lack of faith for mankind.

I'm glad you're staying strong. I'm here if u need me. :]

Yeah, I DEFINITELY feel like an outcast, and I even feel like that here, sometimes.
(Just look at my interactions with all of the other Hardcore Pokémon Players here.)

And yeah, although he's always been a bit weird about certain things, things really started to go downhill when his mom died, under rather nasty circumstances.

You see, she died from some kind of Alcohol related Liver/Kidney problem (IDK much about that medical stuff), and while she was in the hospital, his dad kept giving her alcohol, and even bragged about doing it to my dad (which made my dad VERY angry, to say the least).

He even threatened to kill his dad over it, as he didn't take kindly to his dad giving his mom (whom he loved dearly) alcohol, essentially trying to kill her, by feeding her own addiction, rather than trying to help her like my dad was.
(We spent a TON of time at the hospital with her, although it was always awkward having me and my sister there during school hours, as he didn't like people knowing we were homeschooled.)

Anyway, long story short, his mom died, he never forgave his dad (who got a lot of money from her Death, BTW) for it, and he got rather depressed, and slowly started to let things here fall apart.

That was actually a long time ago (around 15 years ago, I believe), and it took a VERY long time for things to get as bad as they are now.
(To borrow the name of a famous story, it took a "Series of Unfortunate Events", to get us in this horrid situation we all find ourselves in.)

Anyway, sorry for the long-winded story about my Personal Life, but I'm VERY glad that you'll be here for me if I need you, as I've never really had anyone who could do that for me before I came her to Paint.
(Except for my mom, and occasionally my sister.)

I am incredibly sorry for your loss and everything you are going through. Alchoholism is a dangerous sickness, killing many caught in it's grasp. I appreciate you telling me all that actually, because I have been through extremely similar things, to say the least. All i have to say is that while you cannot control your dad and his actions, you can control your own and build the life you want. Not for nothing, but everything worked out in the end for the kids in A series of unfortunate events, after all. :]
