Entry Description

My mother did a horrible thing to me. She did it because she thought it was better to protect other people instead of me. Even if I am aware her intentions were “good” I can only feel sorry for her. These pictures represents me holding my mother’s dead body. There is no complete forgiveness for her actions. My “good” side (color white) can only forgive her “good” intentions, not the consequences of her act. On the other hand my dark side (color black) is so dark I can somehow forgive her bad actions. With a feeling a great sorrow for her.
