Here's a shout out to lilyan H. from Tallahassee. She wrote "I Take My tears Back." and that's exactly what I did. I knew a woman I once called mom. Over and over again she opened and hurt my already frail heart. But now I take back my tears that I cried when I begged her to come home and when I begged her not to take those pills. Now I take back the heart that she took and threw away. Now I take back my hope that was wasted on the dream that she would not hurt me anymore. I take it all back so she won't control me. Like lilyan, I'm a free woman.
