falls as the windows close to cold air
when the baby sleeps she sits alone
hands idle
unable to write music or even listen
to the symphonies in her head
she is lost in the silence
more lost than she knows
careless pregnancy 
 she hides in the exhaustion of young parenthood
unable to embrace personal success
and her life will pass
in this most useless way 
her music unheard her voice unsung

    unwanted and too soon, although she has good family support and a loving husband, they know they are unprepared to be parents, having just been married. The hope for years together to build their relationship is gone, and life is so hard anyway....thanks for the comment....

    Zera, I'm sorry your niece has had to experience an unwanted pregnancy. I hope the family has been able to offer her support during this difficult time. Genuinely moving poem. This happens so often. Love, Carolyn

    You paint an excellent picture of the disappointment her life has become in one too young to have a baby. LUv, Andrea
