Could you write a paragraph that uses most innocent (childlike) words while describing the dark side of adults' world (betrayal, hypocrisy, etc.)?

First Entry

Dear Dia,

It's my birthday today. When Daddy came, he gave me a cupcake. Daddy never smiles, but he didn’t look mean today. I shared my cupcake with Mamy after we ate our beans. Daddy gave Mamy a book. Mamy gave it to me and said I can write to you when I am lonely.

Mamy said your name is Die-a-ree, but I think Dia is a prettier name. Do you like it?

Entry #56

Dear Dia,

I fell in the shower today. I yelled very loud and Mamy came running. She looked scared. My wrist hurts bad. I cried but I stopped when Mamy cried.

Mamy yelled at Daddy when he came today. The last time Mamy got mad was a long time ago. Daddy didn’t hit Mamy like last time. She told Daddy my left wrist broke and that I’m sick. My wrist is still on my arm so I don’t think it broke. And I don’t feel sick like when I have a cold.

Mamy put a towel around and around my wrist and said don’t move it. I don’t move it anyways cos it hurts.

Before Daddy locked the door today, he said he’ll bring milk. Mamy said I had milk before but I don’t remember.

Entry #58

Dear Dia,

Daddy gave Mamy milk today. When Daddy left, Mamy gave me milk in my bear mug. It’s yummy! Mamy said it’ll make me big and strong and I won’t break anymore.

I asked Mamy today where Daddy goes when he leaves, and she said upstairs to work. I asked Mamy why Daddy doesn’t live down here with us like the Daddies in the TV. Mamy said he’s too busy. I asked Mamy if we can see upstairs. Mamy said yes, we can see upstairs soon. Mamy looked sad.

Entry #82

Dear Dia,

I got Mamy in trouble. I didn’t hear a click today when Daddy left. When Mamy was sleeping, I opened the door. There was tall stairs after the door, and I went up. There was another door at the top. I tried to open it, but it didn’t open. I tried and tried and it opened!

Daddy was standing there and his face was red. He took my arm and took me back downstairs. Daddy yelled at Mamy and said I was dirty and sneaky. Daddy came to hit me, but when I closed my eyes, I didn’t feel anything. Daddy was hitting Mamy when I opened my eyes. I cried to Daddy. I told him I was sorry.

When Daddy left this time, I heard the click. Dia, I just wanted to see upstairs.

Entry #126

Dear Dia,

Mamy said I don’t have to wear the towel on my wrist now. There’s a funny bump on the wrist, but it doesn’t hurt anymore. We saw animals in the jungle and fish in the ocean on TV today. Mamy said she’ll take me to see fish after we go upstairs.

. . . . .

Entry #193

Dear Dia,

I saw a lady with pretty silver and red hair on TV. Mamy turned the TV so it talks low like always. The lady in the TV was sad. Mamy said the lady is my grandma. Mamy cried when grandma talked in the TV. I asked Mamy why grandma doesn’t come see us like Daddy. Mamy said Grandma can’t find us cos we’re lost.

Silly Mamy. How can we be lost if we’re here?

. . . . .

Entry #287

Dear Dia,

We went upstairs today! When Daddy left, I didn’t hear a click. Daddy was mad last time so I didn’t open the door. After lunch, Mamy said we are going upstairs. She held my hand and opened the door and we went up together. At the top, Mamy tried to open the door, but it wouldn’t open. I thought we have to go back down but Mamy yelled and knocked. I said to Mamy we’re not supposed to yell.

A lady opened the door. She has silver in her hair like Grandma but she isn’t Grandma. Mamy and the lady talked and let me see upstairs. Dia, there are so many pretty things upstairs! Just like in the TV!

I heard a bell and the lady opened the door. Police came inside and talked to Mamy and the lady.

The lady gave us soup and samwiches. The soup was tomato and the samwich was turkey. It was good. We are sleeping upstairs, but I don’t see Daddy. Mamy said Daddy’s going to be away for some time.

. . . . .

Entry #301

Dear Dia,

We saw Grandma today. She is even prettier in person and she didn’t look sad like in the TV. Grandma and Mamy cried even though Mamy says she is happy. We are sleeping in Grandma’s house and Mamy says we are staying here.

When are we going to see Daddy?

Last Entry

Dear Dia,

I’m sorry I don’t write for so long. I am going to skool now. There are so many girls and boys at skool just like in the TV. My teacher is very nice and the other girls are nice too. My class is the same age as me, but I am the smallest. Mamy said I’ll get big from Grandma’s food and going to the beech.

I wish you can come to skool too. I don’t know when I’ll write again, but thanks for being my friend. I have other friends now, but I’ll always love you Dia.
