The girl from yesterday

When the din of the day wanes

And the chores are all checked-off

When the sun recedes to the west

Embracing heaven and earth

As the day meets the night

In the sublime twilight glow

I rewind to another time

Bypassing presentโ€™s flow

I navigate the lanes

Of a rugged, distant land

Desolate and grey

Stripped of  whiff of warmth

By an ancient rusty door

She stands, forlorn and blue

Wrinkles of angst and doubt

Conceal her coreโ€™s true  clue

In whispers, she recounts

Tales of bitter words and blame

Of her long-standing combat

With battered confidence

The languorous hands of time

Test her endurance and strength

Teary-eyed, she staggers

To  yet another day
