She was accurate
In her assessments
It’s easy when hurt
To doubt oneself

As time goes on
The truth of the situation
Continues to reveal itself

The potion of emotion
The alchemy of dissolution
& of disillusionment
These are the waters
She has had to
Wade through

& then once through
She sees all that was done
& finds it in herself
To welcome
All the wonder to come
