She didn't dream of Olympian things 'cause she knew inside that all heavenly spaces begin on earth. She never saw the foundations of them when she became a teen, stuck with that mind of loss and learning which always comes with time.

High school was so much more of hell than she would ever want to know of; but later on she did realize that you learn of existence where ever you are, and with that understanding you grow.

Things such as the prom is beyond dumb and the cafeteria is the food fight forum, and football cheerleaders constantly scream, "you are not beautiful...and you'll never be."

The classroom didn't challenge except for history which inspired depression. The bathroom stalls had doors which were always unhinged, torn away by vandals with a cause.

It was one day in her senior year, mere weeks before her graduation, that she dropped out, filled with prior intention, only to begin a very different situation.

And the Punk Rock Goddess wrote with indelible ink upon a broken mirror, there above a graffiti painted sink.

"I see myself reflected here...and in this moment...no one can tell me that I will fail. I am in the midst and the heart of my life...and I will dance to the tune I feel." And with a smile met in shattered glass, she found her way and left.
