Wwjd?

I know what you assumed, I know what you thought, but the J doesn't represent any sort of religious deity it represents a name Jewels to friends Julie to family but first and most importantly Mom to me...

Rushing into the house yelling one last slur in attempt of standing up for myself before slamming my door and preparing for the worst. After getting my dog I pulled the dresser in front of the door since I didn't have a lock then pulling down all the cheap window shades so no one could see in I collapse on the floor in tears. Was it my fault? Could it be that in my lack of faith lead to your passing? It's possible to be sure but is it all my fault. The only adult to ever care about me and try to give me a good life was gone and now I hear every day getting out of a long day at school I'm responsible?

Between the throw ins that I'm worthless and not worth the money it takes to drive me to school let alone give me food. The smacks for my "tone" of voice the throwing away of all my books like Anne Rice and other great authors was replaced by a lone dirty bible on the counter. More smacks and slanders for throwing it away but it was worth it. That book means nothing to me. If the god within that book punished my mother for giving birth to me then it was a mutual hate. I reach into my drawer and pull out a pocket knife through watery eyes I watch how the glint of metal shines against the dim light of the ceiling fan/lamp. And as the blade inches closer to my skin I wonder... What would she do? What if she were here? She couldnt speak for months before she died because thats how ALS effects the body but... If she could, would she blame me? Would she tell me I'm sin that condemned her?

I wonder.... All I do know is that if she were alive, she'd want me to still have hope... She always talked of how good my life could be and how I could change the world for the better... But I also wonder if it's just one of those things all mothers say... A sort of pity compliment. But one thing she always said that I would never doubt in all the world is... She loved me. And that was all I needed. The rest of my family could despise and use me, my grandmother could beat and hate me but her love went above all that. As this all sank in I flipped the knife back into itself and put it away.

YEAH...LIFE OF PAIN

Socal..I felt your story thoughout my body and my soul, i felt the pain, and the hope that your mother left for you. Don't judge all christians bacause of some who are not loving to their very own grandchildren. That is not what God created us for ..to be mistreated. just take it from me. Do I have proof ? just get up early some morrning and go to a place that will give you a view of the sunrise and just watch i. Don't you think that happens for reasons that have nothing to do with chance? That scientists know exactly to the second when it will happen again next year, or 8 years from now. Nature is fine tuned, like clock work , only more intricate than any machine designed and built by man.

I'M CRYING.........I COULDN'T PUT AWAY THE RAZOR OR THE KNIFE

That's what it sounds like. :) <br />

I know. There are few stronger than you Socalkins. But in case a storm hits again . . . just be aware. <3

Thank you Jewels. *lights incense and tries to hug smoke so it can pass them on* She's not the only one who loves you. How far did you plan to go with that knife of yours? O.o

I'm so glad you didn't cut yourself. I understand so much of your emotions. I was abused by a teacher and I should'ave told my grandma, one of the few people who wouldave listened. It's fairly common knowledge now, ten years later and it's self explanitory. Knowing that I had a home to go to and a family that didn't hurt me helped me escape and hide better then, and helps me cope now. <3 I'm so sorry for your extreme loss my grandma's dead too. I still wish I'd had told her then. (I'm crying now for both of us)

you're welcome :). *huuuuuugs!*

*hugs tight* It wasn't your fault hun. I'm sorry that you're questions will never be answered, but just know that you mother loves and always will. No one can take that away from you. Thanks for sharing love. <br />
With Love,<br />
