against the dark sky


It didn’t matter to her whether she lived or died.

She was not scared of death or a hard life.

She just didn’t want to harm other lives, particularly the life that was developing inside her.

  1. It reminded me of one of Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poems. In the poem after the husband is martyred in battle, the wife doesn’t she’d a tear and will die if she doesn’t do so. An old nurse places her child on her lap and that’s when she cries. The last line of the poem was
    “Sweet my child I live for thee”
    Amazing 3 lines😀
