The girl told her grandma,
whom she loved and felt deep
connection to, that she wasn’t
happy in her marriage. The abuse
takes it's toll, Grandma, and some
days I find it hard to crawl
out of bed. The grandmother
in the wisdom of her century said,
You made your bed,now lie in it.
The girl never told her grandma
how crushed she was or that she
would learn to make her bed
in a different way.
