Above Her Feet

Questions why; sometimes, indescribable,
Other times, inexpressible; ends with silence.
One minute or the more; spotlights splurge,
Questions surmount; interests endlessly sprout.

A humble heart remains; snugging in its comfort,
Distracted by the uncertain; to no man's bait.
By an honest friend; she learns to trust,
To ends that meet none; it betrays her thrust. 

Comes the answer why; imperfection unaccepted,
Tolerance unlearned; better living her own.

Mend A Broken Heart

All of her days, she chose to be obedient.  She did not cry for attention, but an obedient daughter, and a loving sister she wanted to be.  She put aside all rebellious thoughts of a teenager.  Those thoughts were built in clouds, never into actions.  

She said 'No' almost conventionally to alcohols, cigarettes and drugs.  People laughed at her chicken-heart.  The debate concerned not her boldness; she adhered to the rule parents know best for their children.  How could you say no when the greatest pleasure of indulgence left you defeated?  Her expression of discontent ended to illogical arguments.  Whom should stand for her; whom did she have, but families who discriminated her beliefs.    
Their never-good-enough comments were deafening.  "Am I, any worse than the son who crashed your credits on self-destructive pleasures?  Am I, any worse than the daughter who ran away to a foreign land to a stranger?"  

"How could you not accept me?"  

the other daughter.

A Distant Call

She searched her soul, searching for a happy moment to brag about.  She wasn't unhappy.  She was indeed happy for a series of changes that was about to take place.  It was a moment to celebrate.  For the first time, she was overwhelmed, almost smiling herself in the way.
Perhaps, maybe she was overreacting.  She paused at the consequences of her self-indulgence.  All the happy moments came to a sudden stop.  "For once, a change," that was not meant to be.  

Distance was a test to see how far love can travel.  And love, it didn't travel far.    

"Let it go, let it go..."  She pulled herself up.

Role Model

Infidelity was intolerable.  

"Choose, and ends it straight."

She closed her eyes to digest the newly-fed information and the words challenged, "Everybody's normal till you get to know them."  This day had arrived earlier than she had predicted.  Flashbacks threatened her, she wanted them erased.  It hurt when a sister she was and all the more for her to follow the steps.    

... when love betrayed.
