And She Lived...
She sat alone watching the sunset,
Across the white sand-gilded beach,
The sun's rays still engulfing her in their warmth,
Her mind soaking in the enchanting scene...
While the waves with all their might,
Shattered the golden into prismatic colors,
Just like her entire life...
Whenever the security and the love,
Threatened to make her believe,
The goodness of the world;
The challenges came forth again,
Breaking her frail heart,
While she tried valiantly,
To brave the storm,
And finally emerge stronger and stronger...
She'd been born a loner,
To parents unknown,
In a world full of deceit..
Still, amidst the chaos she strutted around,
Trying to make every end meet..
Her life changed with a few strokes,
Circular and linear lines of blue,
Struck shining on the white paper...
Being drawn into the magical world of knowledge,
Our warrior in the night-light found her solace...
While in the morning it was work as usual,
Cleaning dishes and scrubbing floors,
Into her tiny bag her earnings were stored.
She dreamed and she worked and worked,
To be a part of the place they called school,
To absorb herself into those pages yellow,
When finally our little girl's dream became a reality...
With a heavy bag on her bony back,
She looked around in awe...
Others like her running across,
Smiles and cheerful laughter filled the halls.
Her hope in life renewed,
She started her new life,
With utmost vigor.
So much of happiness to absorb,
And so many enchanted experiences,
She had never loved life so much!!
However, somewhere down the line,
Again the vulnerable little girl,
Of the past came back,
Stripped of her sanity.
Her beliefs and fears came back to hound her,
When that horrible night,
Her much-hallowed professor claimed her...
Her spirit broken and tarnished,
Her soul heavy and branded,
She lost her faith again...
She lost her belief again...
But, like a phoenix from the ashes,
Rose again our beautiful angel,
To make a name for herself,
To make her efforts count,
To make her education her strength,
And not let it kill her soul from within,
And to be the woman she became...
A heart of gold,
A resolve set in stone,
A spirit so powerful,
Crushing even the unbearable...
Today as she shrank back from the rising tides,
He came and held her safe...
Within the cocoon of his brown hands,
It was the home she'd always desired...
For he was the only one,
Who finally did see through her,
Past her bravado and her facade,
Past her chilling attitude and her barriers,
He broke them all...
To alight the fire within her,
To rekindle the dying embers,
Of that passionate little girl again.
She smiled, and with that,
The entire world smiled,
Her heart so full,
Her eyes shining with unshed tears,
As she looked at him,
Her saviour, her soulmate,
Her friend, her lover,
Her entire world....
And she hugged him tight..
As they both held on to each other,
Her past melted away,
And within her, peace bubbled,
The sun soon passed away into another night,
But the torch of love that now she carried,
Remained forever burning bright...
