Life as I knew It
She seems like a happy person, but if you look closer you can see a sadness deep in her eyes. Years of abuse and rape left her emotionally scarred. She spent her life in foster care. She never knew the meaning of love. She was alone. The depression caused her to go over the edge. She couldn't take it anymore. If you look close enough you can see the scats on her arms, but they aren't nearly as numerous as those on her heart. She's only 17. She's been through more than most people ever have to go through. She knows how it feels to want to die. She knows what it's like to lie in a hospital bed because she went over the edge. 17 and she's already tried to end her life four times. If you had seen her last year you would have thought she was crazy. She was misunderstood. She didn't know what to do. She was rejected.
