A Lost Girl/Una Nina Perdida

mariaThis is me in one of the worst times of my life…a lost girl around 15 years old, a gang member, a thug! I hated myself!  There are really no pics of my past. I am not a single particle of that girl anymore…she suffered! She was in pain! She would hide her body and her face…she felt ugly and worthless!!! She believed what she was told…SHE WAS A NOTHING AND NEVER WOULD AMOUNT TO ANYTHING! She was just lost and hurting, and that hard image was just an armor so no one would hurt her or get close to her. This was me, Maria Teresa Mejia. I was a little worm that became a butterfly and now I am flying high.  Love and light

Esta era yo en uno de los peores momentos de mi vida…una niña perdida..tenia alrededor de 15 años, pandillera, una delinquente! Me odiaba a mí misma! No hay fotos de esa epoca!! No soy ni una partícula delo que fue esa chica…Ella sufrió! Ella estaba con dolor! Escondía su cuerpo y su rostro… se sentía fea y sin valor! Ella creyó lo que le dijeron…ELLA ERA UNA NADA Y NUNCA llegaría a nada! Ella sólo se había perdido yestaba herida, y esa imagen dura sólo era una armadura para que nadie le hiciera mas daño o se acercara a ella. Este era yo, Maria Teresa Mejia. Yo era un pequeño gusano que se convirtió en una mariposa y ahora estoy volando alto.  Amor y luz
