Doubt often got the best;
A dark cloud that would not shake.
Trying to run only for it would come haunting.
Disinterested in the gossip and hearsay.
Misunderstanding with gaslighting only to find
It went back and forth-
Trapped within the confines of circumstance
Turning into endless strategies for getting out.
Pressures and stresses that start running out of time-
Hitting deadlines only to find that it starts to drift.
Out of touch with reality and lacking
Hope only to find understanding-
Why they tried to break her spirit.
