In her many Guises.

Death never comes at a comfortble time.

I've spoken to those who knew for years their loved one was dying, still when the actual passing comes,

their grief is as overwhelming and beyond anything they could have ever imagined preparing for. Those who are

blindsided without

warning, do they have it

harder, or perhaps

easier because of not being able to wallow in the prolonged

misery of watching a loved one fade from the grip they held upon life?

Is it easier to deal with the permenance of loss if you are young with the world ahead of you, or harder now that you know life in truly 

NOT infinite. 

Sara is 20 and entering that scary world of

higher education, when her mother

dies.  The days pass in the blur so many have spoken of. She hadn't understood their meaning, until now. 

The gravesight had nearly undone her, How she'd managed to keep that tenuous grip on her screams at the unfairness of this, she could never say.

She didn't see herself as strong, though everyone else bandied that word around in

hushed tones when she'd walk by.

Heroes are strong,

not a daughter this close to throwing herself to the ground and

 bawling like a baby.

They all say she needs

companionship...but in truth she wanted them to

leave. Only then would she let down that lest tendril of her guard and truly react to her



Alone in your grief, what if you learn your mother

is not the mother you knew her to be?

What if you find a treasure that opens up a place

in your self shocked to learn your mother possessed secrets,

secrets that change the core of the woman you called

Mom? How will you come to term with learning your mother had a

story long before the story that you inhabited

beside her?
