The brain is spiraling and the heart breaking,

Truths are now lies, rights are wrongs,

Stand firm in the face of adversity,  they said.

Only the strong survive.


Bewildered after uplifting the weak,

Plagued by the needy that surround her,

Fifty years later, the despair is too much to bear.


Being strong is a proven curse,

Wishing for the final demise but fate not yet consenting,

Hopelessly poised and ready!
