Excerpt : John Marshall Law School
The day finally arrived. I was going to be attending John Marshall Law School in Atlanta.
This was one of the proudest moments of my father’s life. He was absolutely thrilled, that his
only child, a daughter had been accepted. This made my father very happy and he just thought
it was so poetic, that I would soon be a member of such an elite group as he was.
After all, my father Jackson Martin had been an alumni of John Marshall Law School and
maintained a perfect 4.0 gpa and had been one of the top in his class. He always wanted
to keep his legacy going and now all eyes were on me.
I was excited in being able to finally start at John Marshall so that I could finally have my
freedom or so I thought.
You see my father did not like the fact that I had chosen to live with my boyfriend Dante
Caryle. He was furious and always had his reservations about our relationship.
To say that my father and I were at a crossroads is an understatement. I for the life of me
just did not understand, his way of thinking. I mean I loved my father but his constant
put down of my own relationship, began to play a number on me.
“ This dark path I walk alone...
always in torture because of the reminders
of the past”.
“Will I ever be able to break the chains”?
