Born to a young mother and a much older father I was bound to live this life. With two older siblings on my fathers side and two younger siblings from my mother I was exactly the middle child. I never really saw my older siblings, they lived with their mother, and my parents divorced early on in my life. Going back and forth between parents for me wasn’t the typical manner as others. My mother left me home alone to watch my two younger sisters while she was out one night. She had to send the police to our house when she got arrested for drugs and alcohol so then is when I lived with my father. I was up in the air when my father passed from a heroin overdose. None of my aunts or uncles wanted me due to being the child of drug addicts. I stayed with my older brother who was 15 years my senior but as brothers do we didn’t get along. I stayed with one aunt and became her personal slave doing work on the house while my cousins sat around playing games. Come senior year I had taken my life in my own hands and got my own place, a job, and broke myself out of becoming a victim of the drop out prediction. To see me now you would never know who I was and that I lived a less then happy childhood. Finishing school and joining the marines was the best thing I ever did for myself. I don’t talk to many family members for the fact they turned me away. All grown up I have a family of my own and you would never have guessed I was once the boy that no one wanted.
