She stands on the cliff’s edge waiting for reason.
Her breath short and her heart racing.
The crisp wind blowing; fall always was her favorite season.
Bird’s eye view but not really seeing
The infinite hills and the cobalt sky.
Her mind clouded her view and tainted her heart,
Was there any value in her life?
She wrestled and with all her strength she fought.
She was determined not to cry.
She didn’t want to look as weak as she felt.
Her life was full of hurt and lies
And moments that made her heart with fire melt.
Why did all this happen?
None of this was fair!
A young life with a soul that was broken
And a choice that no one should bear.
She took a deep breath and inched closer.
She was almost there now.
For a moment she was stronger and braver.
Her heart screaming and beating so loud
She could hardly hear her thoughts.
Another deep breath,
She walked away.
On that cliff she found answers.
Things that only the wind could say
Something that only could be explained by wonders
And strength that could go on one more day.
She found hope and love so great and strong
That could only come from someone she had never known
She discovered that thing that all hearts longed
To have but most had left it alone.
She found a man who died so she wouldn’t
He took her shame and hurt
From the beginning of time, he knew that moment
She would give him her heart.
She walked away from the shame of her past
And into the future with a hope that would last.
