On my way to the PCP today, and I heard this song on my AppleMusics. What blew my mind was that I hadn’t heard the saying in the chorus in a few decades.
The Evil … that Gave Birth to Me used to say this same phrase, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you from it.”
This was usually said after she let her Psych. Patient boyfriend from Parkside beat me to a pulp. (I was 13-years-old. She still has him as a friend on her FB.) #GoodTimes
What I didn’t realize as a kid is that my Grandmother, or the person that I called my Dad, would have taken us before any of us would have been sent to state custody.
The positive in all this is that my Gramma came and got me a few days later.
I’m certain my mother told her that I was causing problems with her and her psych patient boyfriend.
I have a feeling my Gramma knew the truth.
PS One of a few different periods when no one seemed to realize I wasn’t in school.
My Gramma enrolled me into Claremore as soon as I moved in with her.
So, I got a portion of 8th grade in an actual education setting.
So far, held back a year before Kindergarten even started.
Missed most of 4th and 5th grade because of the year of never-ending fevers.
Missed a huge chunk of 6th grade because Grampa died, parents started divorcing, and nobody seemed to notice.
Missed most of 7th grade.
Missed a chunk of 8th grade.
Dropped out of 9th grade after a couple of months. Don’t think anyone noticed.
Went back, dropped out again.
Went back, but this time to Alternative Learning.
Dropped out again, and went to Rogers State University.
