i am here because my mother met my father in a bar after her husband died.
i am here because my father was a good dancer and could swing a lady.
I'm here because my mother didn't care what her family thought of my father
or maybe she did and maybe i m here in spite of it.
i am here because i ran away from home. i ran so far i thought i would never go back.
I'm here because i met a man who said he would love me, but only hit me.
I'm here because i needed a place to go that was safe, where he couldn't hurt me, so
i looked for a safe place to hide and found a dark and scary place.
I'm here because i liked getting high. i used to hide in that dark space to get
high and i would forget why i was here.
I'm here because i didn't want to feel the pain so i pushed the needle deeper.
I'm here because the paramedic decided to get up that day and go to work and answer
a call for an unresponsive person. i tried to hide way deep in the dark place and i didn't want
to come back.
I'm here because the policeman decided to respond to a call of someone stealing
and using fake identification. i didn't want them to know who i was.
I'm here because there was a baby growing in my tummy and she needed a mommy.
and maybe i needed her.
I'm here because a man decided to love me, even though i couldn't love myself.
I'm here because he stood by me and took care of me when i was not able to take
care of myself.
I'm here today because i choose to be and i can decide that all by myself.
