Sometimes life can throw us  crave balls in which we must do our best to dodge. If we are not able to dodge the crave ball at some point in time, Life will drive us insane. Sometimes we often wonder why life is so complicated and difficult to handle, things happen in our lives to which we are not able to control. For some of use, we see life as a lesson and or struggle. In my case life's lessons are a struggle. For me most of the time life seems to be unfair. Like having a mother who could careless about what I feel  or what is important to me. She freely gives her attention to a man who acts as if he has the balls to stand in place of my father. If that's not bad enough, how about a father who thinks it's best for him to love me from a distance rather then be there for me. His words echo in my mind every time that I've needed him at my side. "I rather love you from a distance then put up with your mothers bs." At the time I was heart broken by his words and couldn't understand why he would make such a  stupid choice like that. But as I got older, I started to understand exactly what he meant. My name is Roxy and this is my story.

 

 

"Ma..I can't understand why you won't let me go hang out with mark. I've always been responsible and mature, I've never been in any trouble. Why do you find it so hard to just trust me?" "Roxy we've had this conversation a million times already. I told you I don't want you hanging out with that trash you call your boyfriend. He's a thug Roxy, he's no good for you." "Ma you don't even know him to even call him trash." "I know he's a thug Roxy and that's all I need to know. He has no respect for himself, coming around here with his pants half off his behind. I bet you his job is selling drugs or something much worse." " ma that's completely not fair. Mark has never done anything illegal. He has a legit job working at the radio station". "Ha is that what he told you Roxy? that he works at the radio station?. Have you even been to his job..Huh?" "No ma I haven't because you wont let me go anywhere." I said rolling my eyes. "Now you listen to me Roxy Anna Miles...I don't want you going anywhere with that boy, he could put you in a lot of danger then what are you going to do huh?"  "Ma what kind of danger could we possible get into at the library? You think he may steal the library books or what" I started to feel annoyed with my mom. She always seemed so concerned about me hanging out with mark even though he has never done anything wrong. "Watch your mouth Roxy.."

 

"Ma your judging someone who is always polite to you, he never speaks bad language or anything like that around you. Every time he was here he was polite to you and you just walked right past him like he didn't exist." "Roxy I'm done having this conversation with you. I said your not going and that's final. Now I don't want to hear anything else about it. Now go wash up for dinner, Ray should be here soon." I pushed past the table my mom was calmly setting as though we were just this big happy family. I'm not sure what she had against Mark but she was in no way going to stop me from seeing him.

On the other hand I despised her boyfriend/sugar daddy Ray. I never liked him considering he always had to play the roll of my father which I didn't need him to. Ray was one of those muscle heads. He thought everyone and everything was afraid of him. I could never understand why my mom dated such arrogant, lame muscle type dudes.

I reached my bedroom that was located 3 doors down the hallway, I slammed the door shut as usual and called Mark.

"Hello" Hey Mark it's me.."Aye baby, what's up." Oh nothing the usual.. I just had a fight with my mom as always she thinks she right about things she has no clue about. "Oh yeah? Let me guess...It was about me right?" I didn't want to tell Mark that the conversation was about him. Even if I didn't tell him, for some reason he could sense that I was lying. "Yeah babe, It was about you." I sighed into the phone feeling a little bit upset about what my mom said and how she said it. "What was it about this time?" "The usual, your a thug and your no good for me crap she always talks." "I don't understand why your mom feels that way about me. It's not like I showed her any disrespect. I speak to her everytime I'm around her but she just ignores me like I don't even exist." "I know babe, that's what I told her. She has no right to judge you based on how you dress. Sometimes she can be so closed minded." 

 

"Yeah I know what you mean, but at the same time you gotta respect her that is your mother, even though she may be wrong in doing what she does." "Are you defending her babe?" "Nah I'm not defending her. I'm just saying that parents are sometimes wrong but we still have to show them some respect on some kind of level." Talking to Mark always made me feel some sense of relief. He was always understanding and talking about the good in other people. If only my ma got a chance to see Mark for the person he was and not for the person she think he is, things maybe ok. "So where you at now babe" "I'm in my room right now, laying down on my bed. My mom is making dinner for that punk Ray, so I don't really want to have dinner with them." "Babe you gotta eat, how about we go and have dinner tonight?" "Babe that sounds great, but you know my ma isn't going to let me go. I would have to lie and make something up to even get out of the house." Aye...I don't want you lying to anyone especially your ma. We can go to the library first like we planned and then go to dinner, that way we wont be lying, we would just be spending extra time together."

 

"I don't know babe..I'm not sure if she will fall for that." "You gotta study anyway right?" "Yeah I do." "Then just ask her to go out to the library then I can meet you there, well get your studying out the way then go to dinner." "I guess I can try that. She knows how much I take my studying serious anyway. Besides Ray is here and she will most likely tell me to go so her and Ray can have what she calls "Grown up time". "Ha ha...grown up time huh...Sounds like she wants to have sex." "Ah babe I don't want to hear that word and my ma in the same sentence. I am going to hang up and see if my ma will let me go study then we can do our thang after were done ok." "Aight babe..text me when your at the library and I will meet you there ok." "Ok baby..I will see you soon bye" "Bye babe." I sighed once more and hung up the phone. I felt excited yet nervous not knowing if my ma would let me go but It was worth a try.

 

"Ma??? ma??? "I'm in the kitchen." "Ma, can I go to the library? I need to do some research on a paper I have due for history class in a few days." "You can't speak Ms. Roxy"  "Hi Ray." "So can I ma???" "Is that all your going to say Roxy? Ray said turning his attention away from his meal on the table to me" "I said hi Ray, what else is there to say?"  "Well first off you can say Hi Ray, hows your day, how was work"  Eyebrow lifted I looked at Ray as crazy as I don't know what. "No to be rude Ray but I'm not really interested in how your day went or anything of that nature." "See I told you, she always have to be a smart ass..I don't understand why you don't whoop her ass already. If it was my daughter she would have some respect for me and talk to me like she had some sense." Ray turned his attention back to his meal. "Well Ray thank god you are not my daddy other wise I'd have to run away" "You know what girl....." "Ray that's enough..Roxy you better only go to the library like you said. If I found out that you were with your so called boyfriend you will be grounded. Do you understand me?" "Yeah ma I understand you. Thanks ma, I see you later."  I headed back to my room to grab my book bag and headed out the front door texting Mark along the way.
