An amulet she wears around her neck to guard her from the darkness of her soul.
The notion that she could be good in this life is a choice that she makes; for it is far easier to fall away and let the numbness take over and to live in untruths and non realities.
She walks the line of expectations she makes for herself so she can be happy and walk in the light of true consciousness.
She feels weak; but she is strong.
She feels empty; but he is on her shoulder.
She feels lost; but she is finding her way.
She reaches for the amulet around her neck; breaths in and then exhales.
It is still there; And so is she.
