Im not sure WHY now I need to unravell the words so twisted into my being.But I do know that I need to set it right inside.
I was a scared, abused,withdrawn,depressed,silent..so very silent 14 y.o who made up her mind that the world wasnt going to get much better so I better hunker down & close the hatches for the storm that undoubtedly continued.
Linda..a teacher, a mom..a Mom that LISTENED..saw the pain & darkness & the depth of wounds.Saw this young woman being eaten alive literally by her pain & the people who caused it.Pizza slicers ran over arms in Home Ec. class,books stolen, not being able to keep a locker.Doing homework locked in a bedroom closet.
Linda was an angel to me.A confidant..someone who made the others SEE what was going on.talked to the principals & guidance counselors & ultimately the superintendent of schools..2 of them.I believed.But that was foolish of me.I know this now.She gave me horses & pride & love.All the things I still search for unendingly to this day.Is it because I once had it?Or thought I did?
