i was not abuse, abandoned or locked up as a child. my parent were not alcoholic, nor were they divorced or dead. we did not live in poverty or in misery, or in an exotic country. i am not a misunderstood genius, a former child celebrity, or the child of a celebrity. i am not a drug addict, sex addict, food addict, or recovered anything. if i indeed had a past life, i have no recollection of who i was.
i have not survived against all odd
i have not lived to tell
i have not witnessed the extraordinary
this is my story. i am ordinary.
