I care little for the zombie culture. For me, it’s just one more manifestation of a desensitized society. (But you go ahead!)
I’ve had this really weird theory about the coming zombie apocalypse and how drug addiction will be its genesis. Turns out, this is not one of my less plausible theories if you have a look at some of the latest drug trends. Which I don’t actually recommend doing.
But I’m beating around the bush.
I’ve re-written this paragraph forty hundred times, trying to decide what to say, how to say it, whether I have a right to say it, whether it’s a good idea to say it. Finally, I’ve decided to say simply: It seems I’m losing one of my girls to drugs.
She came through me. I raised her (right or short-coming-like), and fought for her for all her years (realized or short-coming-like).
She is my girl, my daughter, my child.
And it seems that I am losing her.
It seems that we are all losing.
That’s all I wanted to say.
And needed to say.
Because I have no idea what else to say.
Or what to do.
And I know there are other zombie mommas out there, also not knowing.
So I’m raising this like a banner and a prayer for us all.
