Dear Mommy,

I never understood why we never had that close mother/daughter relationship. Everyday since I was little, I dreamed about being with you and all my sisters and brother. We had that homie type relationship. You were the complete opposite of what I thought you were. You’re not in the right mindset. You said that when we smoke weed and crystal meth together, that’s “mother/daughter” bonding. We had times when we smoked crystal before we had to go fight females for my oldest sister.

We did crazy stuff that moms do not do with their kids. All I wanted was to make you happy. But I never felt that connection to you. But I always will love you. I just can’t have you in my life. I want to do good things in life. I have to cut you off.
