A New Beginning

She walks down the dusty road

Tears welled in her eyes

Her mind is in a state of emotional breakdown,

And is close to destruction

Yet determination tugs on her heart,

Love pressures her to go on

How can she go on, when all she has known is destroyed?

All that lies around her is the dust and soot left from the battle

She is streaked and marked internally with painful memories

Then the dust settles

And she looks ahead to find him

He is sitting there, worn from the battle as well

As she walks with her head up high,

She passes him

He looks to her with begging eyes,

But she cannot stay

She cannot take care of him any longer because

They must go together

To fix what they have destroyed.
