How can I do my homework?
How can I study when there is so much pressure?
My grades are slipping and they keep on slipping.
And I don't even have the help I need.
Why doesn't my mom know algebra?
And why couldn't I be born into a rich family.
It doesn't matter.
I have to try to get better.
I want to do sports and study and make something of myself.
But dad says that school stuff is useless.
And says that he one sees me one day a week on the weekends.
So that is more important than homework.
And I feel bad for him.
Cause I remember them fighting.
At least there is peace now.
Alright, head down.
Its time to do homework.
