I was woken up on a Sunday morning to the weather that Sunday is supposed hold; sunshine! I knew that I was going to be late to church, so I hurried to get dressed. I secretly hid my mothers' car keys so she wouldn't go without me. My older brother and sister were ready, and my mother would leave very soon.
      I had the attic bedroom, which I shared with my sister, and the stairs were steep. The walls next to the staircase had peeling paint, and holes were nails from the railing came out. The white shelf next to the stairs had books and papers piled upon it. As I rushed upstairs, I swung on the rail--were the nails were coming out.
    After a while, I realized I had been taking a long time to choose my outfit. I finally chose: a black dress with purple flowers on it, and under that I would wear a pink turtleneck. The dress was long, and did not provide much walking space.
    I teetered to the stairs and stumbled on my dress! A million thoughts came to me at the time: I was going to die; land on a the shelf and hit my head, get twisted in an odd angle and never walk again. Suffer through the night in a hospital bed and die...the thoughts came in a rush of seconds, and I gasped, brought down to earth--the top of the stairs...with a firm grip on the unsteady railing that I could have brought down that morning...

That was just so amazing. Life for you just seems so hard, so unfair, so miserable. I can tell by your words that you are a good person though and I send you my sympathy. Keep writing!
