You’ll Never Know (To My Brother And His Ex-Wife)

When the word shady comes to mind,
I don’t think of Eminem,
I’m constantly reminded day by day of
How you have not only bruised me, but the
Whole family, your kids included.
I cant believe you can go on with your
Normal life the way you do today
It’s almost as if you are thriving on your
Do you still have a heart?
Or is it just a black hole?
How do you live with yourself?
Have you no shame?
We struggle enough day by day
But now it feels like I have
The weight of the whole family on
My back.
Some days it’s like the weight of the
What’s more painful?
You’ll never know.
You were never here,
You left us abandoned
I wish I could have a day to myself
A day where I could just push these
Thoughts to the back of my mind
But it’s hard to do that
When all I see are their faces
I see the whole family
I feel all our pain
But you don’t know
You’ll never know.
You weren’t here
You left us abandoned
And now we face this burden.
I can’t forgive you.

The kNOw Youth Media
The kNOw works to support and equip young people with the journalism and advocacy skills they need to tell their stories and the stories of their communities.

In 2006, over 25 youth began participating in weekly after-school writing workshops where they congregated in the hallway of a two-story building in West Fresno and learned the essentials of creating media and telling their stories. The group evolved over the next five years and is now proudly recognized as The kNOw Youth Media.

Through our program, we create opportunities for our youth participants, who in turn create long-term positive change in their communities. Our approach weaves youth development and youth media innovation to produce our biannual youth publication, multimedia projects, and community forums.

The kNOw began as a project of New America Media, which was the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. In 2018 The kNOw became a project of Youth Leadership Institute.
