No Other Way
Hers was always lacking
She expected so much
Felt so deeply
She never knew the right way to smile
It was growing up that taught her
But loss that made her
She was strong but in efforts, most unspoken
Most of the time
The cards had been laid out before her
They were already dealt before she made her request
“Spirit”, that was for those who longed to live after death
She wanted to live in life.
Always trying so hard
Never fully getting anything
Hers was tears of sorrow
For that kind of love,
That had never noticed her.
Her best bet was to let things happen naturally
In their own way
But that never worked either,
Usually things and people went away
Oh, if life were to give her some comfort
Naturally was not her forte
Maybe that was her main issue
Maybe her demise.
She knew no other way.
