This is my day four entry for Voice Week over at BeKindReWrite.
It is a five-day writing challenge and you can check it out here: Voice Week HQ
I can recommend reading the work of other participants. There is a growing body of fantastic writing and writers.
AN ALCOHOLIC MOTHER
Voice of Ex-husband
Look, I know this sounds unforgivable.
I found religion. I gave my life to Jesus and when I begged her to do the same she told me I was mad. We split up.
I wanted to take X (name erased to protect individual’s identity) with me, but the missionary work meant I would live in dangerous places. Ethiopia. Iraq. Bosnia. I felt I could do more for the thousands of kids there than my own at home.
As for her, what can I say? She drank more after I left. Never could face up to her problems. Until now, right? Well, good luck to her, I guess.
