Living in Fear

originally posted 7/2012

Ten years have passed since my conviction.  I have gone through fear of trying to be close with others; my new life has shunned me from others that cease to understand me.  I live in a small city in a studio apartment.  I have grown to be alone and fear that all I’ll become is a silent moving shadow that is among the community.  I don’t know what I’ll do; my life is closing in on me but I do live cause life wants me to live.   I have attempted to commit suicide a few times, not because of the registry but knowing that people will never take me in as their own and I’ll continue being shunned.  I just want to be understood.
