I am familiar with life. I remember life. I haven't let go.
I am familiar with a good childhood. I remember what it means to have no needs fail to go unmet. I remember having a loving mother.
I am familiar with a bad childhood. I remember having an alcoholic father who wouldn't come home some nights or wind up totaling the car and ending up in jail.
I am familiar with a good childhood. I remember my father finally kicking the bottle out of his life.
