I was five years old the last time I saw my father.

If you asked me to point him out in a crowd, I wouldn’t be able to tell him from Tom or Harry. I find it a little weird that I’m not pissed off at this man. He left my mother to raise me and my sister while working a full-time job on her own, barely making enough money to pay rent.
