To prove her love again

By sacrificing her own desires

In order to placate yet another

Was a painfully difficult crossroad

And the pressure of deciding

How to proceed at this juncture 

With the evidence of her singularity

Had her heart and mind in turmoil

Until it dawned on her one morning 

That the best evidence of love

Was not in the sacrificing dreams

But in ensuring better self care. -ria
