Sister Theresa Anthony
I did not think that you would help with
the thrashing of me at night,
because you did not look as mean to the girls as some of the other nuns were
When the girls said something bad about you,
I would stand up for you.
They would ask my why and
I would not know
Maybe, it was because you were a bit different.
I thank you for teaching me how to do embroidery,
but you should never have helped to put me over the bed at night time.
I felt trapped and like nothing.
You took my childhood away from me
and treated me worse than you would an animal.
You hurt me so much, not only my body,
but also my mind as well
I had nothing but pain and hate shown to me
I tey to forget the hate and paib, it is
there with me all the time.
I would be watching TV.
and all of a sudden I start to cry.
Or I would be walking along the road, I would cry to.
The hurt and pain would come back to me.
Why were you so cruel to me?
I cannot go into some of the shops in town
because the clothes racks are the same
as you had at Nazareth House orphanage
