MEMOIR AND POETRY

My True Friend

The sister of my heart

--

I think of real family as a circle of soulmates. In my mind, a soulmate is someone who is meant to be an integral part of your life. We are drawn to the soulmates of our circle, our real family.

This circle may be actual kin. However, too many of us cannot count on kin as for that soulmate circle of real family. My own kin were not to be counted upon. Suffice it to say, I did not grow up safe.
