HOPE
I gazed through the walkway, an unassuming path that screamed danger. I ignored the warning. My desire for freedom was like an unquenchable thirst. I would allow nothing to stand in my way.

It was my sixteenth birthday and the exact hour of my birth, the moment when we were given the option to join the cult or take the path to the unknown. Did I have the nerve?

Was it courage to want a life that didn’t start with a motherhood before my seventeenth birthday? If I didn’t make it through the gauntlet, it meant death.
I chose.

Hope.
