A Broken heart Still Beats

Twenty One years ago at 7:20 pm. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I was happy and frightened all at the same time. Today I am filled to the brim with sadness. Instead of me welcoming her into adult womanhood, I am forced to think about what might have been. If only she had been spared the fate that took her away from me. I wonder if the careless ever think of her or me with sorrow and remorse. The cowards have never even offered me any condolence.

I am still here, despite my deeply wounded heart.
