What Will I Say? - Poem by Kirsten Rowe
What have you done?
Take like all those before.
My thoughts that you were different
The one who would stay
The o e who would be strong
The one who would always believe.
I was wrong
When the weather changed
So did you.
You became the one who left
You became the one who was weak
You became the first of us to lose faith.
Now I’m left alone
Buried beneath all the lies
Doing my best to push away the mistrust of everyone
I’m left here in this strange home
I’m left here scared
I’m left here with our gift
Someday she will wonder
What will we say
To answer the innocence behind her eyes
Where will I find the words
Where will I find the strength to tell her
Where will I find a way to comfort her.
What have you done
I was wrong
Every day I’ll wonder
