Forgive me for who I am.

Cherry Benzene's blog

I slipped into the bench
I wondered what the first time would be like
I wondered if I was actually ready
I knew this moment was long over due
Questioning myself was what held me back for so long
As I got my thoughts together, he began to speak to the entire class
It was only four of us but the room felt full to capacity
Our eyes met and he went silent.
A little startled, I wondered if he saw my past in my eyes.
Did he see my fear, my pain, my anger?
Did he see who I really was?
He interrupted my mental conversation by saying:
‘We do what we do because of who we are.
We sin because we are sinners
We lie because we are liars
We murder because we are murderers.’
And with that my noisy mind settled.
A sudden peace fell over me.
