Journaling 101: Jinny: The Voices in Poverty Resist Series!

November 20th, 2012

The first worst time is when
They said it was cancer.

The second worst time is
When they called and said
She expired.

The third worst time is
When they said we won’t help.
You bury her because
You didn’t pay the bills on time.
And you should have a job eventually
Your mother needed 24 hrs care
And we pretended that YOU
Didn’t need any help

In 2002 my wife and I both lost our jobs. We were homeless with three children under ten years old. We were forced to share a house with another family.

We lived in one room, all five of us. We slept and watched TV and everything in this room. We had to share the bathroom and the other parts of the house with 10-13 other people.
