I get abused by my father. I don't cry out of pain. I don't cry when I'm physically hurt. I only cry when I'm mentally hurt. I can easily hide my emotions. People in school think I have a wonderful life but that's only on the outside. This is my first time actually sharing what I feel. My face is like a mask. I can lie to my friends when they ask me if I'm okay. I rather not have them worry. Recently it's been getting worse. My father's anger is increasing and he takes it out on me. Normally I'm so good in school. I have never got a detention or missed any homework. I am top in every class and I get straight A's for every subject. But now my problems are getting worse. I am mentally struggling and sometimes I just want to breakdown and cry my eyes out even in school. But I know I can't do that. It's getting harder for me to lie to my friends. And I find it more difficult to hide my emotions. It's getting to a point where I'm struggling to cope . My grades are dropping and I'm missing homework. My teachers are starting to suspect. They ask me what's wrong after every lesson and I just say I'm fine. Hopefully my life will get better and everyone else who can't escape their problems. Thank you for reading.
