She Saw Her

I saw her walk on thorns
with a kind smile
and sad eyes
I saw her bloodied feet
baby pink polish on the nails
like a dove inside an open cage
refusing to fly away
I saw her.
I saw her today
with her patient smile
and exhausted face
so dark, red and purple
like gallons of tears and cries
pushed inside to hide.
I saw her.
Gulping down self respect
retorts of her educated mind
answers that could turn tables
I saw her choosing
to be belittled and abused
treated like no one had treated her
with the same broken smile
and her kind gestures of love
being discarded fiercely
I saw her
and i wondered
Is it worth it?
Little did i know
Little did i see
that she too wondered
Is it worth it?
