cos what winds do blow
the tidings they bring, how fate does turn
one by one she sees her friends fall
either victim to demands of society or happy in a new found love
what decides this and why such discrimination??????
she had loved them one and all
since the days they sang as choir girls
to the time they wept in her embrace
tears of joy or fear of the unknown?
what thoughts provoke them out of their homes?
away from all they have known and all that has been
she wonders for she does not know-
watching her friend bid all goodbye
the conflict between the tears and the smile
she knows not how to react and watches spellbound
the questions still weighing heavily on her mind,
a child waiting to watch yet another butterfly rise
would it reach the sun or the wings burn?????
she knows not what to say when its her turn,
"adieu" says her friend with a peck on the cheek-
a little dazed and very confused
trying to gain the answers from unknown signs
she must wait cos she does not know.
