Nobody -

I don't want to be like my dad, resorting to violence whenever I'm mad. I've injured people in the past out of rage that's why I'm frightened that I'll meet my fathers fate. He bottles up his feelings, so he pops easily. Every time he explodes he can't remember a thing. I came to a conclusion when I turned eight. My father’s mental illness took him away.

He said "You can try, but you'll never make a difference. You'll never live up to others expectations. Nobody like us will ever succeed. “Son, when I look at you I see me."

He was prescribed with bipolar disorder. It's an illness that worsens as one grows older. Often I've wondered who I'm going to be, and what will I do if it's hereditary? Is that future a possibility? Was I born to condone animosity? Am I a demon yearning to become an angel, or am I simply afraid of my shadow?
