Parenthood and Broken HomesPosted: October 8, 2012
my childhood was pretty twisted in the beginning. i lived in a VERY abusive household. my dad was a major alcoholic and beat me severely and treated my mom like shit. my mom actually left my dad when i was 2 because he beat me so badly, i was covered in bruises. when i was in 4th grade mom told me and my sis she was leaving. one day while my dad was at work, my mom gave me a garbage bag and we were on the road from Corpus Christi, Tx to NO within an hour.
when my mom mentioned leaving i can’t begin to tell you how relieved i was. between the beating, the molestation, and the general atmosphere in the house- it was the happiest moment in my life. the next few year where me, my sis, and my mom shared a bed room at maw-maw (RIP) and paw-paw’s was the best time i ever had in my life. i always tell mom’s that your kid is much more aware of you being in a shitty relationship than you think. so i reality if you’re sticking with an asshole, you’re teaching your son how a woman should be treated or your daughter what she’s needs to expect as a normal relationship.
El-P always has a very surreal POV. always loved his stuff. was talking to a single mom friend today and this song popped into my head. considering the state of the SMP, El-P is on to something. of course coming from an abusive household and knowing El-P’s history of child abuse, the song is fucking amazing. per El-P, the song is about abusive step-fathers, which he was using his alcoholic step-father as an example.
God help the kids.
always HATED blink 182. but this song really hit home for me.
forgot this one.
