Because even though we seem perfectly compatible on the surface, I would honestly just like an excuse to hang up and for once let you feel the resounding loneliness of the dial tone.

And although you’ll probably never receive this letter, I am writing this just to tell you how much pain you’ve put us through.

But I am also writing this to you because I want to thank you; thank you for making every single member of this family stronger.

And it scares me to think that every day, as I look into the mirror, you’re there within me. I wonder if your new son resembles you, too, because that would mean he resembles me. And when I overheard Mom speak to a friend about it, in her sweet but broken voice, there was a hollow feeling in the pit of my stomach.

And I wonder when you were planning to tell us that you had a new son and a new wife, or rather, a whole new family, if we were ever considered your family in the first place. I was there when she bought that calling card that she used to call you that day. I’ve told her so many times that it was futile calling you, whether it was to ask for money because you don’t send child support or if it was your own daughter’s birthday and you didn’t remember.

Because I didn’t need you to catch me when I fell and I don’t need you now.

And those are the unspoken words that I’ve longed to tell you during our awkward conversations on the phone, which last, at most, two minutes.

However, there is one thing that I have kept in my heart from the first day of school, and I have never had the guts to tell you until now: I hate the way that you force me to study.

In school everyone calls me by the name "Asian" because I excel in all of my classes.

Don’t you worry, or want to know where I am and what I’m doing?

When I see your face I know it brightens up my day. That’s why I cry occasionally when I’m lying in bed at night.

But what she doesn’t understand is that I don’t want your money and I don’t want your help.

Because I’m proud of how we are able to go through life without you.

But I have been running for so long that I don’t know where I’m running to, or what I’m running from anymore.
