“I wonder how long it would take for anyone to notice if I just stopped talking”. The way Melinda deals with rape and the self silencing and isolation is just so sad to me. The whole thing with the tree inspired me to create my own artwork

Made me cry hard. I don’t necessarily understand what she went through but I can feel it and feel for her. The rage. The sadness. The pain. The defeat.
