Open Letter to YOU:

I met you when I was weak. Not fully aware or understanding my full potential.
You took advantage of my willingness and desire to be loved.
You slowly crept inside my fortress, pealed my layers, pretending to be something you were not.
You pretended.
All along while I held tight to my concepts of realism.

Broken.
We built words and images through texts and scripts.
Some unnamed, unexplained, unknown energy exchanged,
we both wanted to label it normal.
Except we were both lying to ourselves.
You should know better.
And me- I should have known you.

Slowly finding power again.
Over the life struggles of the moment.
You never knew my battles until later,
and even then I could never explain them the same.
A ploy to get to keep me.
You manipulated the same things I told you.
For your advantage.
I never learned how to play chess, only checkers.
But you- you kept the game on your desk.
I should have saw that as a sign.

I laugh at your recent admiration.
Stalkerish.
Loverish.
Obccessiveness
You never were good at staying away for too long.
Too bad I can now see my truths and your false.
Everything is as it should be,
yet you fight, knowing nothing, wondering if its all your fault.
Reason was never needed for me to leave.

It was you all along.
I needed to leave.
When will you see yourself for who you never will be?

I hope you find clarity in yourself that you are seeking in others.

Signed
- Happily Ever After YOU

P.S ; I am sure she can see these same faults in you ever night she lays there trying to fall asleep. Wondering how her life has managed to become this. Tied into a mirage of images that life is great and you are a family. Too bad its only a figment of her imagination. And you will never be whole next to her .Thats why you continue to search for pieces in others. Too bad you have to see this. I found my power within. Never needed you to keep me balanced. Remember that.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
