Lied to Protect Her2

Father was a wanted man.

Changed names and places so often she forgot which were hers.

At fourteen, she’d been living on the street for a year.

Not speaking to a soul.

A voice told her to go get a job.

Everyone there thought her small for her age.

Turned out, Vilma was just eleven.
