On Her Own

Crystal Lake April 2015 (9)

My friend

Enters the arena where

She is losing her mother

She is losing self

She is losing her son

She is seeking


A safe place upon which to land

Does anyone understand

How can this be

This trial of life

Its force of credibility

Make way, my child

Allow her to wander

Allow her to feel


She may claim it

For her own.
