A true story about a teenage girl whose mother picked up and left her at the age of 15. I spent most of my adolescent years and young adulthood  wondering where I went wrong. Why did my mother lack the capability of expressing compassion? I questioned if my place on earth was meant to be? Was I assigned the wrong parent? Needless to say, I had to find creative ways to fend for myself. I had to grow up fast and the only thing I was equipped with was common sense and the strength to survive, which at times was non existent.
