Criticized, she was today,
For leading her life astray,
Amplifying issues, they alleged,
Unpleasant memories, it dredged.
She was moaning, they barked,
In exasperation, she remarked,
It can never be just one’s fault.
Though it all, she did vault.
Then one day, something snapped,
Reached within, at skills untapped,
Discarding the cloak, that was her past ,
Onward to her goals, she surpassed.
Moving on beyond banalities,
A small price to pay, the causalities,
In serenity and peace she was,
Nothing short of a rebirth, ‘twas.
