After feeling like she lost her mind completely, she continued to allow Satan to keep her in a whirlwind of a degrading, sad, and embarrassing lifestyle. Her church upbringing forced her to seek three different therapists who helped change her life.
Author Camille E. Davis was the youngest of four children. She was a member of Waukesha Temple Pentecostal Church, which was founded by her god-grandmother. Later in years, she went to Airco Technical Institute for Welding, Metallurgy, and Blueprint. She worked several jobs in Chicago and Milwaukee. After being in a place where God could finally get her attention, he showed her herself through poetry, which helped her heal and deal with certain situations. She has a daughter and a grandson who helps keep her grounded.
Davis writes, “Six months later, I went to court, and I couldn’t believe I only got nine months. (Man, here I go again thinking). It was too quiet. I needed to get into the population so I can laugh my time away. I still couldn’t believe I didn’t have a roommate. I needed one because I was thinking too much. Every time I passed this scratched-up mirror, I couldn’t even look at myself. And when I think about it, I haven’t for some years, when I started to stare, I have to turn away. All I was thinking was I haven’t been in trouble since the aggravated battery and that I was too old to be in custody with all these younger thugs. So I turn away from the scratched-up mirror quickly, and as I glanced at myself in the mirror, I just didn’t like what I see. So I yelled out, ‘When am I going to court? I’m only here on a bench warrant!’ But they were not paying me any attention, so I started to lie down. Maybe I could sleep this time away.”
