My Year of Miracles

Day 8
What Could I Have Done?

This morning I woke up
to a bad memory
of this place.
Years ago, I was mistreated 
at work and sought
legal help by going 
to a lawyer named Hopkins.
After telling him what happened,
he replied,
"Are you bleeding?"
That's how bad it had to be 
before you could go against 
a bully boss.
This was 12 years ago.
The memory still haunts me.
It's another reason I want to
leave this place.
Don't want to be stuck here.
Stuck to this memory.
I am not my memories.
I am my actions.
Can I choose not to think about it?
Hopkins was callous.

God, I'm glad I'm not like that.
I'm better than that.
