She struggles to lower
Her fickle anchor against Life’s
Raucous currents-

Leaving her
Exposed and vulnerable
To Mother Natures
Ever changing moods-

…A fraying lifeline…

Is all she has
As wave after wave of
Betrayal and anger
Knock her under…


…Causing her to
Slowly and painfully
On the bitter reality of her
Fear and uncertainty-

And as she sinks


Into the depths
Of her demons-

She can’t help
But wonder…

If it’s even worth
The fight…

To come back up for air

    I really felt her struggle and here dilemma to catch her breath. The fresh and new version of the biggest question: To be , or not to be.

    Within every scar, healing dwells. Understanding comes through some pain. It's through the crack, light penetrates. Lesson learned saves a future blame. There's always one out there, who cares. All that happens, tend towards win.
