Girl Interrupted

Girl Interrupted, 2011
V. Ortiz Vazquez

Unaware the cards dealt to her
Pay no attention to life’s brutalities

References of wrong doing, laziness
Swift away in night
One last breath gone by daylight
Lingering thoughts of “I wish I would have done more”
She walks
Halted, no more

    said, mom, you think too much. I said, you don't understand. Some never have the chance I've had. But he is my baby and he took care of the situation. God bless you as a writer. More power to your nib!
