By the time I was six years old, I had acquired lots of terrible memories. Mother gets arrested. Mother had too much forbidden substances.. Mother did hundreds of other things that I don`t care to explain. But most of all, mother abandoned me. The pain still consumes me to this day, and that was seven years ago. You would think that I got over the pain, but I didn`t. The pain still haunts me, and it prevents me from being happy. It caused so much depression. So many sleepless nights that I can`t count them all, and yet, I stll have the will to move on. You can have that wll too. You can break free. You can be better. I believe in you.
