Discussion

She drifted as lost as the river and thunder

And broke us in her beauty

She felt pain deeper than knives that could cut through bones

She felt it across her heart

So she wore it on her face

Yet what saved her

Was the people around her who helped her rise

She was an angel drifting towards the sky

And all they’d done

Was pointed up and she felt she belonged for once

She had hope for once

And that feeling had left her for a while

They treated her with pills for the pain

Those pills were hugs coated with love

And discussions that healed and helped her embrace her own pondering

She wasn’t wandering or lost

She was unhappily static for too long

When she finally took a step back and realized all she’d done,

She smiled in gratitude and glee

She truly had it all
