And here’s the thing, I have a picture, it’s the only picture I have of myself, my mom lost every thing else. But the youngest picture I have of myself is this little girl in Junior First, we called it Junior First. And I have a ponytail, and I had a little bitty Afro and my mom would take whatever little bitty hair she could find and she would wrap it in one of those twisty things that you would find on bread things and she’d make little ponytail. And that was me in the picture smiling with my little ponytail. And I have to tell you that, that’s me. That’s who I remember every time I wake up. She speaks to me, this little girl. She kinda guides me, sometimes in not-so-good ways, you know, like with boyfriends and everything, she was really not good. (x)
