Rated "PG" by the Author.

I did not want this life, I did not wake up as a little girl of five expecting to become a little girl soldier but that is what I am, a girl soldier. My childhood ended when I was five. My classroom the bush, my education machine guns nearly as big as I am,

I am nine years old, a mere girl in sone eyes, but not in the eyes of the LRA, in the eyes of the LRA I am a Solider, a Solider prepared to kill, and I have killed.  My days of dolls were over before they begun, I was taken from my family when I was but a little girl of five, my toys are now guns, guns that kill, and I have killed.  I have tasted blood, it is not a taste one should ever get used to.

     I did not want this life, I did not wake up as a little girl of five expecting to become a little girl soldier but that is what I am, a girl soldier.  My childhood ended when I was five.  My classroom the bush, my education machine guns nearly as big as I am,

     Boys and girls here are both taken as soldiers, often girls have it worse than boys, we are raped, beaten, mutilated, and if we don’t die we want to.  I feel sometimes I want to die, I feel that being dead would be better than living like this..  No one would want to live like this, unless something was wrong with their head.

     Sometimes I wonder if something is wrong with my head.  Sometimes I wonder if I should just turn the gun on myself, because I do not like this life.  I want to go to school and learn things other than what the LRA teaches, I want to run away, but if I do, I will not only put myself in danger, but others as well.  I do not want to put my friends in danger.  Still I am going to try and do my best to get away.  If I do not I surely will die.

To Be Continued

It's sad that some children never lived as children. They were robbed of their childhood.

Sad indeed!!

Heartwrenching tale, Michelle; no child should ever have to be forced to live like this and become little killing machines! So sad; powerfully penned sadness!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( *tears!*
