As the new day began, it was clear that things would never be the same
She staggered to get up, her shadow visible on the sheet hanging on the line
Embraced by the fresh morning dew, greeted by the birds proclaiming their claim
Determined to make a difference and to put her pain away, firm that life is fine
Dance if she has to, so as to show the world that there’s really no one to blame
Ending the black and white of existence and replacing it with a fine wine and dine*
