Heart beat fast,
Pulses jittered like a vibrating phone,
Cold and clammy skin drenched in sweat
Timorous, I rose shakily to my feet.
I fell myself,
I didn’t think this would eternally change.
I didn’t want anything
Neither a person familiar or strange.

Like a movie flashed on a wall,
With no connection to time
Couldn't step in
Couldn't step out
Standing helpless in this ordeal,
A speck of light rose above me.
A portent perhaps,
A ray of hope
A sign of motherly love,
Stood her spirit
Fuelling me with endearment.
Wander for hope in what pleases you,
Never give up.
The flesh and blood of whose you are
Is forever ingrained in you.
