I did survive being a teenager and earlier I shared a snippet of a day in the life of Hami back then. But truth is I shouldn't have survived.
Jake had promise and he died Brooke-Anne was smart and could have been anything but she died Thommy-Wayne well he was Thommy-Wayne always there with a smile or an insult whichever came first
What made me different than either of them.
Jake believed in God but God didn't protect him Brooke-Anne wasn't cursed with red hair and freckles Thommy-Wayne was abused but few people knew what his father had done
Why them why not me
Jake prayed and wanted to preach Brooke-Anne wanted to be a doctor Thommy-Wayne had his cap and gown ordered like everyone else
Why not me
Jake loved S (his father couldn't accept his gay son) Brooke-Anne loved W (her parents couldn't accept her with a "poor" boy) Thommy-Wayne was going to be a dad (Did his mom even know before he died)
Why was I different
Jake left behind an identical twin brother and a younger sister Brooke-Anne broke her parents heart leaving them with an empty home Thommy-Wayne's mom had buried her oldest (little boy at just 5 yrs old) about 7 years before Thommy-Wayne was born
Why did I live?
How did I survive my teen years?
Why did Jake die? Why did the gun go off in his hand?
Why did Brooke-Anne die? Why did she think the floor board of the car was suddenly safer
Why did Thommy-Wayne die Some said it was suicide? Did he mean for it to happen? Did he want to die? Or was it prison he actually wanted? What was he thinking?
Why why why??? How did I live, when they were just as deserving as me
