My Life

They say when you’re born you sign a brand new lease but when death comes knocking at your door they say you’ve finally found your longed for peace. When we first start out we’re just very small seeds but within our mothers we grow like weeds, then comes the happy day of our birth, our first picture’s placed on the fireplace hearth. Mommy holds us Lovingly all wrapped in her arms while Daddy has a way with his own little charms. They bathe and feed us every day, they make sure we’re Loved in every way. Then we get older and we start school, they want us to learn the Golden Rule, we make good grades and our parents are proud but then we get older and meet the wrong crowd. They introduce us to a thing called pot, it makes us feel good so we smoke a lot. Then one day pot isn’t enough so we start taking pills and other stuff. Some go on searching never seeming to find while others die and leave their families behind. Some quit using and make a good life, they become faithful husbands or a Loving wife. I had a baby when I was just 16, I was still a baby myself it seemed. I was married at 17 but he was heartless, ruthless and mean, I’ve been married 2 times since then it seems as though I’ll never win. People judge those like you and me, who do they think they are? What do they think they’ll see? So don’t judge me until you’ve walked in my shoes and that my friend I don’t think you can do because I myself haven’t yet made it through. That’s enough of the story for now, it’s time to go and make life better somehow.Written By,Cynthia Brown
