I hated primary school.
They say be careful what you wish for.
My family lost everything.
I did not go to school for roughly a year.
I stayed home every day.
Watched everyone go to school.
All of a sudden being unhappy at school did not compare to just not being there.
Our electricity was cut.
We had no food.
Bailiffs took little of what we had left.
I hid what I thought was valuable when I heard them coming.
I hid my dog.
But today, when people see me.
What I lived.
I lived in fear of judgment.
Until I realised I was being judged.
They insulted my life and my experiences.
You have no idea.
Do not judge a book by its cover.
Till today I have never let anyone open me.

Very Deep, I hope you are in a better place. Nicely worded and said also!!
Thank you so much! In a much better place now!
Those were incredibly hard times and being reminded brought tears to my eyes. We survived to tell the tale and I am proud of you and who you have become as a result of those awful experiences. A word for the judgemental: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged”. Matt 7:1.
