Katrina woke up suddenly. She noticed that the sun was nearly at it zenith. Looking around, Katrina saw that she was lying face down in the grove of trees in front of her house. It took a moment before the experience from the night before had revealed themselves in her memory. Remembering the pain she felt in her head was a bittersweet memory because thoughts that were not her own flooded into her mind. Disconnected images of children being slaughtered, their parents being killed, and various other scenes of death and evil acts against the innocent shone brightly in Katrina's mind's eye.

She was out of her bed in a heartbeat and without even knowing her body just knew where her mother was. Her younger sister's room. There her mother was crying her heart out.

Looking out the window and across to the woods. The woods th

Big John packed the last of his vegetable crates onto the wagon, cushioned against two large piles of Oren’s furs and skins. Oren checked the harness again and then rubbed Peabody’s nose, grinning with appreciation when Marie held out a snack basket for his trip.
“Thank you, good lady,” he said, bowing with a chivalrous air. “Do you think you can stop by and check on Hanah for me later today?”
“So you’re not taking her?” Big John said, raising a surprised eyebrow.
“I told you he aimed to keep her,” Marie whispered, vindication in her voice.
Oren smiled at both of them. “No, she’s staying here.”
“And you...trust her?” Big John eyed him with concern.

Will I ever?The more I discover who I really am, the more lost I feelWill I ever?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How much longer can I hide who I really am?
The heavy burden I have to carry along for so many years is getting heavier and heavier
waiting to fall
It's hard to see through the plastic
to look in the mirror and see
the mask I have to put on
Over and over again
Will I ever be the person I really am?
I try to ignore it
try to forget the pain it causes me
but instead it gives me more pain
Afraid of losing the people I love
if I ever should tell
if I ever would show
the real me.
