She Stood Alone

She stood alone but oh so tall
And how we waited for her to fall
Laughing behind her back for fun
Knowing she was feeling glum

We took pleasure in her pain
This great beauty now so plain
Alone she was- that’s how he left her
Ms. Perfect no longer so secure

She has not wavered, I wonder why
I thought by now we’d see her cry
She just keeps on going at normal pace
The only evidence is pain on her face

We stood there waiting as the door closed
Finally she would not be so composed
The sound we heard still rings strong
How I see now we were oh so wrong

We took such pleasure in her pain
She never let us see her disdain
How alone she must have felt
As we stood waiting for the Ice Queen to melt

How cruel we were- how sad the end
She must have needed one true friend
She closed the door on her life
Didn’t she know she was more than a wife?

But how could she-we never tried
And alone was how she died
As we all stood in shock and misery
We never tried to help her see.

Strong...reaches out for children, young ones, middle age and old folks.

Only the strong, who see through the farce, and envy, of others...survive.

a feeling of quiet resignation and remorse comes from this.
