An unexpected, unwanted daughter in a family of seven.
She had a mother who was unusually cruel and brother who told her daily that they saved “the shit” for last.
The love her life married someone else and her husband told her he only married her because she would take care of him. He never loved her.
Shortly after, she got into a bad car accident that left her neck loose and her eyebrows scarred.
She met a homeless man living in a used car lot and became pregnant with twins.
He drank and beat her every night he decided to come home.
She loved her twins dearly but at the age of ten she quit parenting. She was tired of doing it all on her own and turned to crack cocaine. She thought they could take care of themselves.
She made poor choices in friends based on her newly acquired hobby and was robbed and abused.
She ran deep in debt and fell behind on all of the bills. She ran to Florida with the twins where family could help out.
They all turned her down because they knew she was abusing drugs.
Her daughter got jobs and paid for the bills while her son dropped out of school to make sure she didn’t kill herself.
Eventually the twins grew up and tired of their defeated mother draining their lives. The son left first, moving to Wisconsin. The daughter left next, moving into several different homes with friends and their parents.
Several years later the mother was arrested for trafficking narcotics and spent over a year in jail.
The daughter traveled to the grey visitation center each Saturday and regretted every visit.
Once out of jail she moved into a one bedroom apartment and picked up old habits. She dwindled away her life and eventually isolated herself from everyone until she ultimately killed herself.
