Soiled foil

New Beginnings

Her life as full as soiled foil

covering leftover cake. 

Not part of the party, 

but on edge afterward. 

Not part of the family 

but used in need 


Not valued but has purpose

like soiled foil on leftover cake. 

lonely tears stream away 

she knows she's alone 

she trusts only herself 

her santuary becomes solitary 

As she cuts like the edge of foil 

she asks why she's cut off
