Here I am, just trying to help,
A heroine hidden in plain sight;
Living life, just like everybody else,
Doing what I can to set things right.

I am bought by my lover;
To his child, I am his mother;
But he and his friends turn to Her again,
Passing Her from one hand to another.

Here I am, just trying to help,
With adrenaline, needles, and gloves;
Living life, just like everybody else,
Saving those that overdose on love.

I sit at home as shots are fired;
My duties as a girlfriend have retired.
She makes him melt withdrawing blood, in ways I never could--
In ways I am forced to admire.

Here I am, just trying to help,
Raising a child not two years old;
Living life, just like everybody else,
As my world around me is stolen and sold.

This shower's searing, yet I'm cold;
By my lover I am sold,
For a little bag containing some ****,
To a man to whom I cannot mold.

Here I am, just trying to help,
With pistols to my head;
Living life, just like everybody else,
Aiding strangers that resemble the dead.

We must flee--my child and me,
For our lives and our safety.
Paid in **** by cartels, my lover now digs tunnels;
Please refrain with your pity.*

There she is, just trying to help;
A heroine hidden in plain sight;
Living life, just like everybody else,
Turning the darkest rooms to light.
This story is true. I met a woman on an app called Whisper, where strangers post things annoymously. She is from Buffalo, New York. We formed a friendship, and have since become very close. She then told me the most incredible story. I've never known of anything so dark in all of my life. It's a true story, about her relationship with a ****** addict, and all of the things he put her through. She has reach levels of beautify I had no idea existed--never mind a human achieving. She has a place in my life forever.
If you would like to, please show your support for this wonderful woman. She is doing a brilliant job raising her son, and I want her to know how much the world admires her courage to, not only to make it out the other side of what she lived through, but to say--and I quote--'I'm just living life, just like everybody else'.
Please show your support however you see fit; I want the world to know her story, and how much they admire her for going through this. I'm send her every message in support for her that I get.
