I was helpless, with no way to escape, no door to let me free…There I sat on the balcony rail wondering what life had in store for me next as I struggled being stuck with this family to which I never belonged. Some say that blood and DNA is what makes you related to someone whereas others like me believe that a relationship with someone bonds with the heart. I bonded with no one in my family, they where nothing like me, shared no interests with me – whether that be food, music, fashion, style etc. Everyday I woke and the first thing I thought was when can I leave? It was traditional for girls like me to stay with their families forever since i am the youngest. Its simply part of our tribe. But I have a career to make, a life to live, events to experience. I am stuck between family and life. How can i tell the family who have bought me up, paid for my needs, fed me, cared for me when i was ill, smiled when i was happy, and were sad when i shed tears that i want to go and leave them because i am the youngest and my siblings have already got married but are soon to move out which leaves me...who will look after my parents when they're old? I am all they have to live for. I am their only hope to fufill their few desires. It has been our family tradition for years for the youngest sibling to carry out important rituals for a peaceful afterlife for the entire family. Will i have the courage to break this tradition? Will i be able to find and experience love like i have always wished? The youngest (meaning me) aren't allowed to have children either. Its simply a sacrifice. The tribe would hunt me down if they were ever to notice i was thinking of escaping to the city. I don't want to be trapped in this camp, amongst fires, amongst the other tribe people, amongst the dead fish and  lakes, amongst the lush trees of this dark jungle. I just want to explore life and be an ordinary girl. It's now or never...
