Excerpt from "Today’s Lie Tomorrow’s Fate”

by Juliauna Washington 

To this day, I still miss that house, that life, those people. It was the first family that wanted me. Actually wanted me, but they pushed me away because of a tiny mistake. I went to my former room and couldn’t move. I felt like I wasn’t even there. I grabbed some clothes and went to the bathroom to shower. I turned the showerhead on and the water came spraying out on my face. It was cold at first, but it warmed up after awhile. I still felt like I wasn’t there, or even alive. Like someone was controlling my body while I sat in the dark alone. I started to feel dizzy and sat down. The water was spraying my head now. I moved to the corner of the shower, wrapping my arms around my knees. Tears and water rolled down my face. I didn’t want to cry, but I couldn’t help it. It felt like my heart had been yanked out of my chest, stomped on with a boot, and burnt to a crisp. Then put back inside me…
