Biography of Julie Schleppegrell

Julie Schleppegrell poet

I am the youngest of 5 kids. The only girl. My father took me aside when I was 10, and said 'Julie, out of all the kids, you scare me the most. You are unpredictable and too independant. I am afraid you will be the runner.'
He was right, I did run.... What a confused little know it all I was to think that I could defend myself.... Instead of dying, I finally became the girl I should have been when I was 30, but now the woman who I finally recognised was not a boy or a Man, and know that 'anything 'he' can do 'she' can do better', was a silly liberal woman's thought.

Papa

Prime: is the role to his daughter,
for, he was the first man in sight.
No other will compare to what he taught her,
imbedded in her soul as her search takes flight.
... From child to adult, he is the protector, the savior, the guide,
The ultimate love she can always confide.
As life phases change,
we must travel through, an emotional sail through the tide.
As it may be hard feelings for us to arrange,

[Hata Bildir]
