When i was a little girl my mum would say " Stop being so selfish and do what I tell you"
I would nod my head quickly and head off to do my work
I was such an innocent little girl
I was this ball of positive energy
Until all that energy was taken away from me so quickly
I tried to say no and keep it
I fought so hard to keep the innocence and positive energy inside me
 I lost and I was plunged into a darkness
I fell ways down this dark hole 
I fought to get out of this darkness that held me in there
I finally found a flashlight 
It was so bright I kept it on all the time
I was proud that I could see the light that I once had
After awhile I saw that the flashlight was flickering
I panicked and knocked it over
The light went out again
I screamed and cried
I was putting scars all over myself
I was blaming myself for everything that happened to me and other people
I couldn't stop and I watched as the blood dripped down my arm
I sighed contently knowing that I could feel pain...that I could feel something
I felt empty for awhile
I cried myself to sleep everynight
Making sure that I wasn't to loud to wake up the rest of my family
One day I crawled out of that hole and laid in the grass as it rained
I smiled and tear rolled down my cheeks mixing with the rain
I heard my mother as she said " Stop being so selfish and get up and help me"
I grit my teeth and looked at her
"Yes mother..."
