It is rough when at a young age, you are
told such bad things. Bad things children
hear often shape their lives and their
outlooks on their lives, damaging
them so until they’ve been told
and consequently believe
they will be nothing.
Adults don’t realize how their words
can shape a child’s life. I was told
I was evil. I was degraded because
my parents loved me.
Yet, I blossomed into someone
that persevered and went after
my dreams. I didn’t let the past
dictate my future.
