LETTER TO MY MUM– WHEN I WAS YOUNG

0
When I was young, there was so much I wanted to tell you but I had no courage, no voice.
When I was a little girl there were so many places I would have loved to be,but I could not because I was not that special.
We were 27 children altogether so I kept it.
I kept all my thoughts and they died with my youth days.
When I was young, I knew I always heard a voice talking to me and this voice allowed me to follow my instinct but I did not realise it was my inner voice.
I would have trained it so well and tell it to you,but you were there at the same time you were not there.
When I was young I was called different names like stick, broom, witch etc,and I was identified as the odd one out in the family; I still feel like that till date.
I felt like my word did not make sense to you and you felt I made wrong decisions and lived a different life from the family.
When I was young, I had no insight, I would have climbed on mountains, to do the impossible, be rich at the age of 21, be in a proper relationship and then get married to that one man.
But because of my young engagement I ended up being this single;frustrated and trying to preach to mothers and girls how vital it is for their children to see them as a reflection of something positive.
I wish I could turn back the hands of the clock and choose my life and path.
