little girl

my little girl is crying
it's so hard for her
"don't you know the danger
in this?" she asks...

my little girl is shaking
it's so hard for her
"don't you know you
shouldn't talk?" she asks...

my throat closes up
squeezes shut
tighter! tighter!
as my little girl tries
to clamp it shut...

    little sheep is a little girl
    but little sheep is also a grown woman

    little sheep is a lonely, scared vulnerable victim with nobody to help her
    but little sheep is also a strong, smart, self-advocate with many supporters and people pulling for her

    little sheep is struggling,
    but little sheep is going to make it.

  2. Hey Shef,

    Was thinking about you, and just wanted to let you know what an inspiration you have been for me.

    I figure this post is as good as any to let you know that I can't fully comprehend the life you live and how difficult the struggles are, but your ability to share them and express them has really taught me many lessons that can apply to myself (or anybody).

    You've demonstrated on this very blog, time and again, just how far you've come, and given us all faith that you will break through.

    I hope your journey gets easier along the way and that you never feel unsupported.

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to learn from you.
