Don't Hate Me

I need to talk to you. Just… just listen, okay? It's coming down to the wire now, you know. Of course you know. I'm just so overwhelmed. I don't know if I'm going to make it. The stuff is still so hard, and I'm so confused. I'm afraid I've gotten so far behind now that I just can't pull myself up. It looks like the only option is going to be summer school. Your only child, not going to graduate, or at least not sure if she will. I've let everyone down, everyone who was counting on me. But none of them matter. You're the only one that matters to me. I'm sorry I let you down. I'm sorry I failed you. I'm sorry I failed myself. I… I know you're ashamed and disappointed. Just… please… don't hate me.
