Krista, this left me speechless the pain and sadness penned is so real and so vivid. Flashes of things flood my mind of times I have experienced such chaos.
You haven't lost your touch, this is a magnificent piece
Brings back vivid images and memories of what were called insane asylums years ago. To see the patients in such pain and agony, then all of sudden they became calm as if hope had returned to them. Well done.
