       Inching slowly in the thick fog and mist
       She looked beautiful in her black gown
       Having a gun clenched firmly in her fist                    
       It surely was a mystery to crack down

       Oh! a young lady, so simple and kind
       What was forcing her, to act so blind
       Invisibly,  I followed her from behind
       Deciding to read, her turbulent mind

       Thinking of her past, the days of delight
       About her baby daughter, and her plight
       Totally unaware of the approaching night
       Dark clouds from left, about to cover right

       Now was the time, for their diffusion
       Quite reflecting her mental confusion
       Birds of prey were hovering around
       Reminding her to ask for her pound

       Gradually she moved, from grave to grave
       Firming her resolution, she felt more brave
       Because her husband, met a violent death
       His enemies should now, face her wrath

       Praying silently, bending on her knees
       She felt the dead, were more at peace
       When she turned towards the passage
       She was overcome by a strong message

       It was a loving voice, that came from near
       Asking her to live with the world, and bear
       Doing her duties, without shedding a tear
       This changed her mind , reversed her gear

       The violent thoughts, had a dramatic twist
       As her mind was now, free from her hit list
       Lost was her anger, and she turned so mild
       She rushed back, to take care of their child

    I got chills reading how she suddenly realized that avenging her husband's death was not as important as taking care of her child, Rohini. A genuine response any mother would have. You did an excellent job. Congratulations! Love, Carolyn
