I did not ask for this life.
Death would have been better, than to be made to kill.
To be raped and beaten the way I was.
A monster took me from my family.
The monsters name is Jospeh Kony but he had others do his bidding.
And now I am forced to grow up with the scars, the nightmares.
I have escaped the Hell, but I have not escaped the nightmares.
They say I am one of the lucky one's, but luck had nothing to do with it.
It was by God's grace I got out of here.
By God's grace I made it. I know that, and I know that it is a miracle I am alive. A Miracle in every way.
I should have been dead long ago, burried like my family.
Even my siblings who were taken with me, did not all make it out, and my older brother who did, changed.
How can you not change when you are fed lies? Made to kill?
