related to Little Prophet


“People want me to take up their cause: demonize the mother who aborted my tiny body, thinking it would die. They say, ‘More tiny ones may have yet lived. You must stop the killing.’ I am here to tell you that this is not my purpose.

“I have been shown my future by Those-Who-Know, and what I saw was darkness. Inside my mother’s womb, the cord and I struggled from the start. It fed me unfamiliar poisons. I was grateful to have escaped.

“It is your responsibility to live life if you find yourself with it. Nothing more. Nothing less.”
