I am actually proud of this young lady because she is smart but it was pretty evident that she suffered a lot of abuse at home and yet is surviving. One of the most significant choices was to not go back home because as she said and I am paraphrasing, “too much temptation”.
But at the same time looking back at her past on A&E, she said, she should be thriving. She said that. And this kind of talk most undoubtedly came from social workers, guidance counselors and self-help books. She was thriving as a young girl but the demons that haunted Ma and Pa Needle made that foundation shaky.
The mom said she was one of the greatest people that she has ever known? A teenager who has Gollum’s ring tethered to opioid dreams and where Meth is always more. A boyfriend who gets to sow seeds deep and in a haze find a love that no one else could possibly can. While deserving souls are denied pain relief and all in the name of a fix or fixes, overdoses and quantum mixes.
And getting to how very very very smart she is, the cumulative amount of verys invariable make her very very very smart. So let’s break this down. This attractive intelligent young woman is held hostage to a drug-induced state while disconnected parents with brick telephones hammer
I Love yous in a staccato deception. This very very very very smart girl is doted upon unhealthily and the father says she is not good at drugs. Well that is a goal, I guess? Iron Oars on a rusty canoe.
I believe the father has other secrets too. We may or may not know one way or the other, and probably do not need to, especially as this young woman continues to actually grow up. The patchwork quilts are replaced with yarn, replacing burned-outs bulb with Neon. She is a champ inspite of the nesting cuckoo birds who cooed lies on brains filled with chemical Metaphors.
Good luck and God’s speed and while I know her parents are just human too, the objectification of her youth and intelligence invariably vanishes. She is arty woman and interesting too, but let this very very very very very smart woman who is not good at drugs, to forever give them up.
It seems to me that we are reverting back to a time we do not want to go. Things happen in life, you can not control the tick of a clock anymore than you can control people. In the next moment creative art will be inhibited as politicians talk about things they never experienced and if they did, they just lie about it.
