She's Purpose

It sits perfectly still on display with no flaws in sight

She's a breathing trophy to the ones who gifted life

proof that they did something right

She's an excuse to brag

never taken off display

just something to point to

to validate themselves

they earn the credit


And She's so good

until She's not

And She makes them so proud

until She doesn't

and when She doesn't

when She finally chooses

She's shoved to the back

not in sight

She's nothing

so she feels nothing

She is nothing

so she runs

and the trophy falls towards the ground

the process

it's slow motion like

it's beautiful

peaceful almost

She glides

and then

It shatters

shards everywhere

a breath of relief

that She's now truly nothing
