Chapter From My Short Story; True Beauty ~ The Wrath Of Discord.
There Is Wind & There Is Rain
Queen Ann Explained

When Your Mother & I Were In The Prime Days Of Woman Hood
We Never Could Have Guessed The Repercussions We’d Someday Face.
For Our Lives Upturned
Ever Subtly Into A Melodramatic Scene
Whence The Vine Of Discord Was Born
Bold As Our Children’s Eyes
Now Faded
Just As Each Of Our Dreams…
Today Now Shaken
We Lie
Broken & Bittersweet
Just Under
“The Upper Hand “
Of A Lifetime & It’s Past Endeavors.


Queen Ann Further Explains

You See
True Beauty
It’s Such Things As These
Of Which My Lips Half Heartily
Do Speak;
It’s These Memories
Forever Ravaged
That Here & Today
Do Gnaw Incessantly
At The Caverns Of
You’re Mothers Broken Speech
Weigh As Dampened Clay Upon My Now Broken Hips.
You Must Understand
This Is Not What We Believed
Nor Is It Something  Expressed
With Light Hearted Speech.
No No
My Children
Believe Me
When I Say;
There Is Wind
Heavy As The Stones That We
Cannot Change
There Is Rain
With A Generation’s Dowerys
True Beauty
We Lived To Die
Died To Believe…
