A moment of revelation,
She saw through the mask,
Sand castles crumbled,
The wave of realization brought in a flood of dark.
Laughter turned into cacophony,
Betrayal at every step and turn,
Companions departed,she sat and mourned.
Clouds of Melancholy cast a gloom so dense,
Pained she cocooned, shut doors to cleanse.
Yet blessings made way through little cracks
The torch bearers-they gave her love and light,
From cradle to the journey so far,
Infuse in her manifold might.
Shaken faith, bitter memories,
She tried to walk away but the good souls refused to leave her side,
Held on till she found the strength to further stride,
Lady luck-Beautiful and kind,
Gifted her with some peace of mind,
She rose in the glory of her awakening
With new rigor and zest for life
The year that went past made her real and alive.
