Don't look away.

I am not asleep. Look into my eyes. What do you see? Can you see my fears? Do you feel my pain?

You see . . .

I woke up one morning, while the moon was still peering through my blinds and started writing. I did not stop. Most nights I was up all night. I wrote about street life. I wrote about the pain in a mother's heart when she's struggling with an at-risk child, or a child that has went gown that road. As a writer, my goal in my life is to free a teenager's mind from the mental bondages of hell (the inner city).

Don't look away.

They are not asleep. Look into their eyes. The eyes of a child. Eyes destined with little hope. Can you see their pain? Look closely into their eyes. What are they looking at? What can they see? Can they see you watching them? Do you think they hope you can see their struggles, and their silent cries?

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Ms. Johnnie Renee. It is my goal to help free a child's mind from hell.
