For the ability to tell my truth.
For the loss and the question I can't ask.
When I see someone live and love out loud.
For the ones that don't know they can.
When fear clouds my judgement of my own greatness.
When I realize how much time I've wasted.
Not knowing what's coming and to not holding it back.
When love is shared between a look and the depth is never ending.
Of a mother and daughters love and the lack of one.
I cry because I can
Because It hurts
Because it feels so damn good
Because I was left and I'm ok.
Because fuck you, this an't your story to tell its mine.
I cry cause I know a lot about some shit
and I don't know enough about so much more
and as the tears run down my face falling into my mouth
as I laugh uncontrollably I know with every tear no matter the reason I'm free.

That same year her mother placed her in an insane asylum where she stayed for almost 3 months. That kind of betrayal by her mother, a woman she once idolized, broke Nona’s spirit in a way which would take years to recover from. The author currently lives in Los Angeles…
