ACTING OUT

I was so hungry
and grandma wouldn’t
give me anything
to eat. I couldn’t wait.

I started throwing
things at her head and
now I’m here again.
I tried to hurt my

grandma. I’m sorry.
I always break and
throw things when I get
angry. It’s because I’m

sick. I take medicine
to calm down. I hate
acting out. I’m just
like my brother. He’s

sick too. Demons talk
to me. It makes me
sad to hear them. They
tell me to hurt others

and to hurt myself.
I’m going home when
I stop acting out.
I want freedom, you know.
