Happy Ending

“My story has a happy ending, but it’s been quite a ride along the way. I grew up with my Mom in Magnolia. My Mom was an addict. I took care of myself from an early age. I saw my Mom overdose, I saw her get beaten and raped. We didn’t have a home, and if I couldn’t find her after school I went to a friend’s house. Sometimes I had babysitters. I was molested by a babysitter. I didn’t tell anyone for years. My Mom legally abandoned me, and I moved to my Dad’s house for high school. Things were better, but his love was tough love, and that didn’t go over well with me. After high school I joined the Marines. I was married and divorced twice. I went to jail. I drank heavily on weekends. In 2011 I drove drunk and hit a tree and broke my spine. I had to learn how to walk and swallow again. It sucked. I was on heavy pain medications, and it took me four years to get off the opiates. The happy ending is that I’m off the opiates and not drinking. I’m taking care of myself. The happy ending is my girlfriend. The happy ending is that every child goes through life lessons. God is all forms of energy, but most of the primary energy source is love. So back to the happy ending, which I believe can be found in each and every human being at any given time. Unfortunately, humans always get lost. Once a person understands his or her universe, then he or she is ready for love. The connection that love can bring to a well-developed mind can and will change the face of mother earth as we know it.”
