  • I want to leave America


    before I start my English is terrible. You'll know why :

    I am 16 years old and I'm from Germany. Last year my father left Germany to start a new life in the U.S. Back then I was 15 and i didn't really care. Right after he left I started being really bad and my mom was really worried, November 2014, when she found my Cigarets she got really mad and she said "Go away I don't want to see you again, go to father." Back then when she said that I didn't took it serious but December 2014, she said " You're flight is gonna be on the 9th of January 2015".
    So now I'm here living with my Aunt and my father and I hate it here. They took my phone so I can't contact anyone in Germany. I'm not allowed to have friends here. They get really mad when I get a C (and I am trying my best I mean English is not that easy for me especially when it comes to science). I miss my friends more than anything else. I'm cutting myself and I wanna commit suicide but then I think about my two little brothers. I can't see them growing it hurts so bad. I wanna run away. And then going back to Germany where I belong!
