Sat by the window
She pondered on
Where was she lacking?
Was it her devotion
To the family?
Was it her dedication
For the causes, she believed in?
Was it her knowledge of relationships
That were always challenging her?
Was it her monetary contribution to the family
Needs of which seem never-ending?
Was it her time
That never seem to be enough?
Then as if Deja vu
It wasn’t her
But inflated ego of those
Who are supposed to be “family”!
