She woke up today feeling happy till she heard theÂ screechingÂ of her mothers voice. She had overslept. The kids were not ready for school and she did not have breakfast ready. She was so tired from the night before from having to meet two men.
She slowly got out of bed afraid of what her mother would do when she saw her. She raced quickly getting the small children up and on the bus. As they left she slipped the money onto the piano for her mother, knowing she was expecting it. She found it not quite fair that she had to sneak out of the house to earn this money but also she would get punished for sneaking out the next day. It did not make sense!
From the outside nobody could tell what the house held. From the outside people saw a shining family, full of laughter and love but when it came to the girls room, so much grief and hurt.
The girl sat there this morning as the children ran around. She sat there rocking herself back and forth on her bed, crying silently into a pillow so she could not be heard. She would not let anybody ever see her cry, they would not see her break. In the eyes of everyone around her, she was so so so strong. Although inside she was broken.
The girl cannot take this anymore and wants to leave this world, she wants everyone to feel the suffering she has felt all these years. She knows she cannot leave because she has to meet some more men tonight.. for the nth time. She has to survive for her family. She remains the ghost girl.
