I thought I was smarter than my parents, so I married a rebel and kept his secrets.
I bore a child. I lost a child. I bore another child. These
three children taught me who I really was.
I left my husband because I
needed to breathe again. I’m still learning how.
I met a man who made me
feel like a queen, for just one night. It broke my heart, but it was worth
I told the truth.
