“The first 17 years of my life were Hell… The most scarring events were me as an 11 yr-old, being beaten with a two by four to the point where I couldn’t move. All I could do was cry & wonder what parts of my body were broken.
“The second was being stripped down to my underwear and being locked in a dog kennel along with my younger brother for hours. I haven’t spoken to my parents in years, & because I have no plans to speak with them, I wrote “I Could Be Wrong”. This song & video illustrate a hypothetical conversation between them and myself where they finally tell me they’re sorry. In this video I play both of my parents and myself.
“The entirety of my childhood I would get asked about bruises, scars, black eyes and I would either lie or say nothing. There are so many kids dealing with what I did. To those children, if you are reading or watching, I want you all to know there is a God above that loves you who is aware of you. You can go to Him for comfort through these miserable & unbearable times. I also want you to know as someone who’s gone through it, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It does get better.”
