Change, it killed everything for her; old to new
Her children being her focus in life; always will too
The only thing she thought she had knew how to do
Now, dreams of running far away to ensue w/out two

She always felt inept at every single public event
Even all alone, she’d hear her step-mother’s tone
Chastis’ingly mocking her decisions in every way
Hideous laughter to ring in both her ears for days

A keen edge not so clean; yet, glistening
Take the blade, slowly glide across your leg
Parting of the flesh before thee with glee
More &deeper before you get to go home

Flashes of hope slip down her throat
Rolling out of her hand; the empty container
A black slick pool has gathered around her feet
She can no longer retreat; she’s done it……………
