My eyes first saw with love, my heart first felt tenderness, my arms first felt comfort…but then I saw your hands.
My eyes saw the evil, my heart felt the pain, my arms showed the bruises and my lips tasted the blood.
I always thought you would love me. I never ever thought that you could hate me so much.
I never knew I was your mistake.
Mommy I am sorry I am not what you wanted, but I will always love you.
I am in heaven now mommy.
I told God you didn’t mean to hurt me.
I told Him you were very sad all the time.
I asked Jesus to forgive you and when your time is up on earth, you can come and be with us in paradise.
Mommy, I now have my wings to fly like an early morning dove.

I love the arts…nature…animals…
I find my peace while photographing
the beauty around me…
sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, animals,
the lake, architecture…
I also like to draw and back in the 80s, I loved all of the work by
Patrick Nagel, and I was doing drawings like his!!!

    This gripped my heart. I can relate though I’m still living. Don’t know if I were wanted when conceived but I sure felt the sting of knowing that I as never good enough and so the physical and mental abuse. I know I will also always love my parents also besides it all.

  • TY and sorry …I was not wanted and never lived with my mom and never met my dad…I had the abuse from another. I figured people could relate to this!!!
