Each day she convinced herself
That she was important,
Worth something in some way
Just to have it all broken by words
For a time she thought
“What shortfall do I have? ”
And she couldn’t get it
How could her greatest strength
Be her worst weakness with another?
How was she wrong?
Or maybe it wasn’t her at all she thought!
There was never going to be an answer
No one, not even her understood
Someday she will get that
That she too was important
