From the Child I Rise
Everyone has some sort of deep, dark secret hidden within them that is dying to come out. Revealing your inner thoughts helps in the healing process. I wrote "From the Child, I Rise" to unveil a completely different side of my childhood that I often kept behind closed doors. I chose to write this piece because I feel that in some way I have grown from this experience. By exposing what my past entailed, I am able to let it go and move on with my life. We all need to forgive and forget. I dont think that I really had done that until now. All those fears and feelings of hatred had been bottled up inside of me for so long. By using different fonts, I created the effect of the adult reaching out to the child. This displays the idea of parenting ones self. I spent most of my childhood years alone, usually in tears, having to make my own decisions. I could never rely on my parents.
