She's psychotic and raised me with her belt and her fists. Tonight she went too far, screaming at the top of her lungs in front of my building. I live in a nice, quiet neighbourhood and she humiliated me. On purpose. Right in front of my landlord's apartment. She is a constant burden on my life. I curse the day she selfishly decided to have me. She was never equipped for the job. Sometimes... lately, increasingly often, I wish my mother would just die.
