One More Cut1 - Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

LIKE barren land filled with
rocks and dirt, she takes her
sword, and adds one more cut,
LIKE a baby bird learning to fly,
she lands on the ground, and starts
to cry.
LIKE the wounds of a beatiful saint, she
holds the needle, then finds a vein,
again, again, and again, .......

    a very good write, you describe the plight of your sister with such affection, not making her actions into something dirty, nor glamorous...glad to hear she is doing well, I pray the future is kind to her.
