“Your life isn’t over.” My dad says this. “I mean, YOUR life isn’t over. Beyond the kids. You’ll go on living, doing things. This isn’t it.”

“OK,” he replies, then grunts — more of a brief hum. He only hums when he thinks I’m full of shit.
V-V-Voice…the word sticks in the back of your throat. Your mouth shudders as your teeth grit together. You push, trying to get the word out. A jarring, jackhammer sound gurgles out of your mouth. Your face contorts and your body shakes as judging eyes stare at you. A shameful feeling washes over you. Your soul is forever crushed.
