This morning I was reviewing an old poem I wrote, trying to decide if I would include it in my collection. It was a very emotional piece because it was about a boy I went to school with many years ago. Something went wrong in his life and he brutally raped and killed a young mother of two small children.
I decided to try and research his name and I found a court document concerning his case….
W-O-W…..I knew some of the details, but not all of them. I never knew that much about him and we lost touch after high school. The document said he had suffered for years with mental illness and he was a paranoid schizophrenic. He claimed to have an imaginary friend who told him to do bad things.
Not sure if I will include this poem. It was so upsetting to me then, and it still is now.
Hope your Monday is better than mine has been!
