    Mum was dying again. The priests and doctors thought she would die. She did, slipping into a coma and hemorrhaging. She looked peaceful, but her body was as cold as ice when I tried to wake her up, pounding on the corpse that was my beautiful mother. The three day funeral was a blur. All of it was a giant blur, like when you go on the tilt-a-whirl at the carnival and the world is a random streak of color and light. Nothing fully settled in until I was eight. I was home, Dad was out back. He was working hard to get our old pool ready so my cousins and I could have fun and splash around. I was crying, alone in my cold house, and slowly floated into the kitchen. I opened the knife drawer and let a knife hover in front of my abdomen.

My heart dropped, my breathing deepened, and all hope seemed lost. This was all too similar to that day, the day where everything in my life turned into a silhouette; dark and lifeless.

    Mom was small, a slight 110 pounds but through my eyes, she was large, even after my height surpassed hers. To this day, she would argue that she weighed only 100. Her strong presence claimed her space, and anyone else's that she cared to. Being right was of utmost importance to her, and she made sure always to have the last word. Overbearing, and overprotective of me, her only child, she usually controlled every situation, regardless of how trivial. I had always wished that she would…

    took about three weeks for me to even fill comfortable sleeping in my own home. I became so jumpy and paranoid getting in and out my car until I just had to tell myself, enough is enough. I was no longer going to let some women make me afraid to live in my own home. It’s not like Michael had a key or anything. I stop by the health food store today and picked up some miso paste, portabella mushrooms, spring onions, shrimp, and seaweed to make me one of my favorite soups. This soup is ready to…

    “Jessica, we are going to be late!” my mom yelled. It took me by surprise and instantly stopped my day dreaming. “Sorry, Mom,” I yelled back. I had almost forgot that today was the day we were going to go sailing over the ocean.

My favorite red dress hanging over the chair, and my jean shorts I had worn the night before was laying on the top…

    lot of people throughout the day. Some people ignored us, and some people listened. Just getting one second of someone 's time made me feel accomplished. I did a lot of the talking, but some people were willing to talk back. I learned some people’s stories, and they told me how they really were interested in a relationship with God.
