On the Wrong Side of the Road
I grew up on food stamps mainly because my mother had a drug habit
since my brother was born.
I went to public school in Sarasota, Florida where I don’t believe
anyone ever noticed. If they did, they didn’t ask questions. We were
absent a lot and tardy as well. No one seemed to care.
Why would a smart white girl have a bad household? One with addiction and lots of love.
Someday we will see everyone as our equal.
