You won't believe it no one does


Hello world I don’t know how to write I have a story that I have to tell instead of wondering all alone I mean I know that’s life everyone has a story mine is a little different. In my title what’s my purpose and where am I going brings me back to as far as I can remember as a kid, I was born in Newport Rhode Island in 1968, Rhode Island being my mother’s birth place my father was from New York, from the second grade back I have spotty memories meaning very little bits and pieces of my great-grandmother and my grandmother grandfather and uncles on my mother’s side I grew up not even knowing my dad or any of his family. I can remember being in the second for 3rd grade me and my middle Brother we’re watching TV in the living room sitting on the couch wow my mother and third father we’re arguing and fighting when all of a sudden after slapping her all around the kitchen  and out the side door he hit her in the back of the head with a Oak whisk broom knocking her out,, this man was a brick mason that’s all I should have to say about his size,, I can remember the first time we got our ass whipped not spanked whipped with a stick or that’s what we call them they were from the woods where we were shown to bring home  when cold  or when we new to !we’d gotten our shots and everything for school  but my older brother didn’t want to go so me and my middle brother  didn’t go either  figuring that Mom  would be home first  we were sitting in the living room watching TV when guess who in the world walked in  for lunch  LOL LOL  no I don’t think so it wasn’t funny exactly how we were told  wait till Mom gets home  when she did  we were told to go get sticks  exactly how he said it go get me a stick when we returned  he lined us up in the kitchen  and it started with my older brother beating from the back all way down his legs they couldn’t hold the stick anymore then he started on my middle brother feeding him the same when he finally got to me I was totally in shock blue crying screaming he pick me up with one hand slap me on my ass and turn me loose when I got to the bedroom both my brothers had already stripped of clothing off their ass if I could only describe the welts across their backs and legs just like you would see a slave whipped on TV   later in life when our gym teachers see we wouldn’t dress out 4  PE they would know and we wouldn’t get in trouble I’m telling you my mom was so scared of this man it was stupid that’s why she didn’t leave sooner so many families help take care of us growing up we went from friend to friend for help I stayed with family  all of them good except for one when was a child molester  get you drunk buy you cigarettes candy food anything to win you over to his good side then we’ll take you skinny dipping partying watch x-rated movies somebody tried to tell but nobody believed them so it’s been kept a secret forever I have a flashback memory  of almost drowning in a pool  somewhere in Washington and I can remember being shot between the eyes  with a bow and arrow  that my brother had  when I was 5,… I can also remember when I was 14 I made a bow and arrow one of the best ones made by a white boy, (meaning) I was raised in a Indian Community from the second grade until I graduated, I let my middle brother shoot it at an angle straight up in the air, when no one saw the Arrow come down I ran into the field  the direction the Arrow should have fallen, when all of a sudden I hit the ground face first when I came to the Arrow was sticking out of the back of my leg, I start remembering in the second grade I don’t ever remember my mom meeting the man or knowing the man that she married he was in the United States Navy, Step Dad was out to sea on duty when my mother and some of her friends went to Robeson County to a party,, my mother had took me and my brothers to a babysitter where she never came back to pick us up after the weekend had passed, next thing I remember is we were taken and separated and put in temporary foster homes, many months went by where me and my middle brother, we were together in a foster home my older brother in another,, Before it slips my mind In telling I have a cross that I have been wearing for so many years I’ve forgotten,,me and a friend went to the washer  to wash clothes in pulling my glasses from where I hang them in the collar of my shirt I’ just felt the chain snap something snapped anyway I went hostile because I lost  that cross, i’ve been wearing that cross had heard so many prayers, me and my friend looked all over around my neck in my big coat I was wearing couldn’t find it nowhere listen folks the next morning I woke up went to the bathroom was time for me to get up as I stood looking in the mirror brushing my teeth I pulled my chain thinking what I was to get another pendant the crosses on my neck on the chain that I cannot disconnect  connect,  so I have proof Witness cross wasn’t there woke up next day morning cross hanging around my neck in 86 crashed a 750 motorcycle around the curve doing 55 came out of it without a scratch my body was pretty bad meaning sore front wheel was touching underneath the motor of the bike anyway in 1991 while drinking partying I fell asleep the next morning going to pick up my wife and newborn child the second angel he blessed me with I lost a lot of my life from that accident my brain got bruised the Cerabal part of it  damaged in the circle part of my brain it really messed with my memory I had the thought pattern of a 4 year old for a great length of time when one morning Awakening with no memory of anything from the time of the accident until the time I woke up I was blank me and my wife separated not long after that accident and we both moved on my next relationship I had my girlfriend gave me a car that belonged to her husband which had passed away a year earlier again me drinking bad part of town stormy night out trying to score,, the next morning I was parked in the
