We are gifted, and the gifted are always treated differently.
I’ve known this all my life. I have seen through my own eyes as they have done so to me.
The “special” children are not to associate themselves with us.
They took me from home where
told my parents that I would be in “capable hands”
I sensed their lies, I was only eight.
My parents willingly let me go, even as I cried they looked away.
My life has never been the same.
