The tears stream down her face
as she remembers the detailed news
The doctor gave to her
She lays on the bed
Curled up tightly into a ball
Her knees hugged to her chest.
As she begins dealing with her nightmare
The memories of her past flash before her eyes
And she realizes she has never been as alone as
She feels right now, in this instance.
Her family are all too caught up in their lives
To even take a moment to acknowledge her
When she tried to let them know
But that is what she had expected.
What she hadn't expected was her closest friends
Hearing the news and just walking away
Unsure why that happened
She tried to talk to them
But the messages just went unanswered.
Her heart was breaking in multiple ways
The silence from them hurts more than expected
But not one to stand still
She realized if no one wanted to support her
Be there and help her through
She would need to rely on herself
And her faith in God
