William Mitch Jessee
One of my dear friends named Anna Foxley told me about your contest and convinced me to enter. I prefer writing, over video of myself. I dislike watching myself speak because of my teeth. I've struggled to hide them for so long that I have forgotten what having front teeth is like.
But, with that said, here is my story.
Let me take you back to when I was a 10-year-old boy on a cold December day. I was with my best friend Aaron and we are outside climbing a tree. We thought it would be a good idea at the time. My hand slipped from the branch I was holding on and I fell to the ground face first. The concrete broke my two front teeth. After I regained my senses I climbed that tree again.
Hindsight is 20/20 I guess. If I could go back to any day, it would be that day. It set me on a one way trip without my two front teeth. Two years later I cracked my two front teeth again, only this time on a candy cane. When I was 24 they teeth broke yet again on warmed up nachos. When I was 31 my teeth weren't strong enough and they both broke away. The dentist told me there wasn't enough of the original teeth to work with and I would have to get implants. Now I have two blackened holes where my two front teeth should be.
Present day I am 35 and I hide my teeth at all cost. My insecurities have gotten the best of me and have made me a shell of what I used to be. I smirk when I should smile and chuckle when I should laugh. I bow my head when talking instead of holding it up high. I wonder what I would give up to have them fixed, maybe my dignity and my pride?
So here I go reaching for that helping hand. Help me smile again. Laugh out loud and not have to worry about who is staring at me anymore. I want to be me once again.
