Hope

That moment of unprotected violence,

Sarah barely escaped with her life.  

She struggled to erase the nightmarish memories with drugs. 

Unfortunately, 

the unthinkable happened.  

Nine months later a baby is born. 

Plagued forever with brain defects, she fights. 

Ironically, her name is

Hope.
