SKIDS: Traumatized Kids and the School System

So, here we are.  Some of this blog will be thoughts, confessions, poems, or just my revelation of a fucked up day. Kinda my open diary. Im a sucker for inspiration and words of wisdom so bring it on! Not every day is as bad as it seems. My mind is my darkest friend. But, once putting thoughts into words I can rationalize where im right or wrong (rarely wrong as I am woman...🤫😉). I hope you enjoy and understand this is a work in progress....
