And A Child Will Lead Them.

I had heard about generational curses when the language was tossed about in church, overhearing adults phone conversations and the occasional mention in broadcast shows.  As a teenager when it was explained I remembering feeling such a sense of finality.  Like my life was already position for me without me having a choice.  However, it wasn’t only me but my entire family.


Could we really inherit a life as a “victim” because we were born into the realties of our parents and ancestors.  Because she was raped, would it be inevitable for me.  Can’t I escape the pattern.  


I said a prayer in my bed as I lay on my side swaying my body back and forth in a rocking motion.  My arms surrounded me like a watered womb, providing the comfort of home with ever rock.  I ask a genuine question with honor in my heart and intention in my gut.  “Can I be the one to break my families generational curse.”  I knew who I was talking to even if I lie alone in a room shared with only my fears and convictions.  I knew if I asked loud enough, it would be heard.  I also, knew if I suggested that I could do it, I would be given a shot at trying.  


If I had only known that being given a shot would also translate into being shot at.  Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it….stuck to you in your face before being raped.  Am I still considered a child at 14?  If I am then it is okay to say, “and a child will lead them.”
