The dam broke and painful memories threatened to overwhelm her.

A friend appeared with a life preserver just in time.

Grateful, she quickly swam towards the safety of the shore.

Where a tropical drink and a steel drum band awaited.

"That was a trip." She laughed. "Let the party begin!"

She stood her ground,
Memories receded
She starts renewed, refreshed.

Bolstered by new found confidence, ready to face the day.

Her lips were sealed, but glossy, brown eyes betrayed her.

Eyes that were like deep dark pools of liquid sadness.
