It's my 21st birthday and instead of going out with my friends, partying, or having fun, I am sitting here, rocking back and forth. It's all I can do in this dark, empty room. I haven't seen my family in 16 years today. Images of my past are the only happiness that lingers inside me. He said he would let me go when I was 21, but he said that last year. I have almost completely lost hope of home.
I can hear him unlock the door. He is coming for me. It's time for my 3rd beating of the day.
