It’s the end of an era; the last page of a story written with an unknown beginning. In this post, I talk about filling my journal and the importance of all of us leaving a mark on the world.
Protect your son from the world… …put him in a box so tiny that he can’t breathe, or speak, or function in the real world. Teach him that god only loves them if he is ‘normal’. Place scenes of bodies burning eternal in his head so that they can play on repeat… …all just so he doesn’t DARE wear a dress… Or speak out when an adult tells him not to tell. Because compliance is more important than sanity.. …and he’s a man of god… …and your son doesn’t have a voice anyway. Go ahead and ‘raise a child up in the way that he should grow’ and hope that he’s not different… …or abused… Because if he is, you’ll have to shoulder the pain and guilt and send him away to live in a camp somewhere… …and maybe he won’t want to live at all… But you’ll sleep soundly at night… …because heaven is the only thing that matters in the end
