Tamika Wood’s Birthday Party

& Other Stories by Le Kendall

Untitled Cello Piece

Michelle Parker isn’t quite sure who she is or who she wants to be. She keeps running away from things but no matter how far she runs she’s still right there.

Bethany once asked me if I’d ever thought of going back. But I think going back would feel too much like admitting that it was wrong to leave in the first place. But I couldn’t. Even if I went there. There are some things you can’t go back to or back out of. Maybe there is no going back. You’re just going forward while facing the other way.

A story about identity, siblings, mental health, being taken advantage of, masking your struggles and not getting your needs met.
