Long Ago

I interviewed for a job.

"Can we still call you by your first name?"
Someone joked.

My feelings? It was just a job.

I arrived for work.

Women were in power. We were
stripped into groups.

Sexual advances flew every which
way. I ducked all of them. So, I
was blacklisted.

Mz. Manager kept writing vile things
on my evalutions.

Work left on my desk could be found
behind anything. Co-workers refused
to answer work related questions.

People stopped talking when I
walked into the break-room.

Top management did Mz. Manager's
bidding. I was fired.

******

I have written a novel with accounts
of various situations that happened
stirred in.

I have to thank the Philadelphia Police
who heard my crys for help, and
responded.

Still, I forgive those who tried to
crush me. No, I wouldn't socialize
with them. I hold no ill feelings
in that I dont want to get anyone
back.

It is freeing to forgive, allows one
to move forward.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.


She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.


She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.


Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
