I didn't ask to be me. I did't ask to have a mother who is gone. I didn't plead to have a father who wants to drop me off in Florida and keep on truckin'. I sure didn't beg God to give me the initials of that stupid sandwich, the BLT. I got everything I never asked for, it seems. Who enjoys being whisked away from the town they grew up in to a small town in Florida? Who wants to be put into a family that they don't know? An embarrassing family I might just call my own?
Nope, not even in my fondest memories do I remember asking for this.
