She had it all at her feet
A world revolving round her.
That was last week
Queen of her street you might say.
Now it tumbles, crumbles around her
Disintegrating as beside her
Others feel their strength
as she… as she…..as she….
I watched her fade away
Into the depths she’d sunk too.
Each moment deeper
Way out of control
Spiralling into the mire of her abyss;
Until there was nothing
But a sparse memory
Of a girl who once was.
She wasn’t as fazed as you might think,
She’d learned there was more than
One thing making her whole,
For expectation hastened her demise.
Today she takes stock
Knowing where her passion truly lies
That there is a place for her
Just not where you might expect it to be.
I stand back applauding
As from the depths she rises
Emerges renewed with enthusiasm.
There is a path forward
One that will give her soul
A sense of fulfilment.
I’m an observer standing
Waving her on
Her wisdom astounds me
Her commitment to her belief
Is staggering to embrace.
I can only stand and marvel
Wonder at the progress, the path,
The journey she allows me to share.
