Born and raised until 10 I came from deep in the Appalachians. Those hills hide a lot of evil. This is my journey of overcoming.

Appalachian Hayes




 

My heart fails within me at the treachery I have seen. My own flesh and blood have betrayed me yet made me feel as though I have wronged them in some way. Unwanted and unloved I set out on my own journey to discover a world hidden behind mountains of pain. Baptized in murky water they hide behind a cloak of utter darkness. Hide in your woods where no stranger dares trod for I have seen your deeds and judged your tree’s that yield fermented fruit. How dare I even think the thoughts of the wicked they say. How dare I break their pathetic tradition of dysfunction.  This backward girl found her voice amongst the wolves that surround this place. So go on knit your sheep’s clothing whilst your souls withers like the grass on Rosehill Cemetary. For you see my children have a future and a hope. While your’s lay stuck feeding off the deeds of their father’s. Let your demons run rampant, your decay can touch me never more!
