She was cloaked in bravery
And dressed with a smile
She was full of love and experiences
and a sense of expectations for more to come.
She has experienced the lowest of lows,
and yet, she knew that there were more to be expected
and still, she wore her smile, even on her darkest days.
While she remained haunted by certain faces and memories
She knew that eventually, at some point,
she would have her demons on their knees.
