A face in the dark
A warrior from within,
Cries tears of sorrow
"Warrior" by Ann Marie
My niece is in foster care right now. I haven't seen or talked to her in a long time. I miss her, so very much. It's taking a while for her and her brother to come home. And they are naturally frustrated. Everytime I watch the "Do you want to build a snowman?" music video I cry a little.
She just reminds me of Anna from Frozen.
She was always there for me. Whenever I had a difficult time...she lifted me up with her hijinks and silly antics. Now she's going through a difficult time herself...and I don't know how to be there for her.
I sent her mom some uplifting voice messages for my niece. Some music, some poetry. All this after a letter was already on its way to her mother. (I think I'm overdoing it xD).
I'm sorry, I just miss those kids so damn much. (Why am I apologizing? xD).
All in all, things are better health wise. I had my first treatment for Interstitial Cystitis. Heparin, it's called. It was a weird experience. A lot of relief afterward.
I was happy about that.
The pain was unrelenting and followed me wherever I went. I could barely get any writing done (insert sad face emoji).
I just miss my niece. And I am worried about my other nieces and nephews. Some of them (not all) don't have the best home life. So I worry about their mental health. I want the best for them. I want them to all have a good life, full of promise and happiness.
That's all I want.
