Koyama talked to a person who had an abusive father
You and I basically experienced the same thing, my father is also like that. When I was in fifth grade, I wanted to protect my mom and told my father “Get out of this house!”. It was me who suggest the divorce, I told mom “You should break up with that kind of man, I know you wouldn’t be happy if you stay with him”. After my parent divorced, I hated my father so much. I didn’t want to talk to him and see him ever again. After that, I found out he was abusive for a reason, so I seeked him out and talked to him, all the things I had wanted to say. I think you should do the same, it will be easier afterwards. Eventually, I am a son, so if my mom is happy it’s enough for me.
Dear me on that day I’m standing here now The dream where we’re being laughed at by someone It’s still reoccurring here now Sometimes it looks like I’ll lose sight Sometimes I give up on everything My impatient wishing caused pain The coward inside of me was laughing Nevertheless (Hey) Since I’m not giving up On tomorrow somewhere, Today again On these legs (Hey) covered in injuries I’m managing to stand
For example, as long as my voice reaches, anyone will do Can you hear me? I’m holding my head high, now I’ll shout This pledge with everything crammed in I swear, I’ll never back down and I’ll never be defeated On this path I decided on my own, I’m betting it all I’ll do everything it takes so I can smile
