As she sat basking in the warmth of the sun, feeling it melt away her troubles, she dreamed of being far away.
Her life was as far away from her dreams as possible. So many troubles, burdens, hate, and love.
While growing up she always dreamed she would have her dream career (marine biologist), meet the perfect guy, who loved her tenderly, and 2 or 3 children.
As it turned out, she dropped out of high school because of drugs and alcohol. Career dream, gone.
She had plenty of unsafe sex to support her habits and found herself pregnant, homeless and alone at 19. Perfect guy dream, gone.
She stopped abusing alochol and drugs. She found a friend who took her in. She gave birth to her son. She gained employment at the local bar.
She spent her days, learning the REAL meaning of love with her son. She spent nights getting pinched, swatted and hit on by the local drunks.
Life continued in this fashion for about 2 years. She was growing optimistic about life. She wanted the best for her son. Sh
