Strong And Delicate

Strong And Delicate

~Deana J. Tavares

 She has chosen to be happy

Inside a body

Made of glass

That breaks

And cracks

Around her

With every bump

At every crash

On the outside

Looks are deceiving

Neatly accessorized

Wearing smiles

Ravaged by explosions

Inside war torn for miles

The darkness

It will not get her

As she fights it

Sword in hand

She’ll fight it

Every single day

Until she cannot stand

It will not win

This battle

She will fight it

Night and day

It will be her choice

Then her flag

She shall hoist

But first

She will have her day
