She Can’t Be An Island


September 19, 2012 Prompt: Island


She Can’t Be An Island


A mother, a wife,
she can’t be an island;
He roars like a sea

He roars like a sea,
she turns into an island;
so vulnerable

So vulnerable ,
waves of pride die down soon;
island vanishes…

Island vanishes,
she emerges much stronger;
a mother, a wife


RS:)

  5. OK, I'm betting she was a lot stronger all along than he thought. Marriage and motherhood are not for the weak at heart. :-)

  7. "She roars like a sea" - my favorite of the entire lot. But you painted the whole picture is so vividly with words I could imagine the interplay.
