She made a journey when very young,
Only staying a short time in her destination,
Having no choice in arriving or departing.

She had guidance from many,
But not from a few,
Suffering one great loss but receiving support to ease the pain.

She made another journey,
Leaving the old world for the new,
Never to return.

Opportunities denied,
New paths to follow,
Stability attained with curious appetite to satisfy.

Could it have been different?
In some ways, yes,
But not in others.
