I was thinking about my character Trinity and her true raw feelings that she never fully reveals of dealing with her parents struggles and how she had to grow up fast and harden her heart to survive.
The ice is breaking dear
This arctic of ours is Summer
The ocean is made of tears
Tugging at our icebergs
Pulling us apart
In torrents and currents,
Ripping up our hearts.
Freezing is the best
Way to survive this test
For the slush and snow will melt away
By the end of this treacherous day
But hardening into icebergs and glaciers
Can only prolong the way of nature's
Will to make us sink and shrink
Into tides that only know how to shriek.
