Broken Family


Given the circumstances,
you're lucky you survived.
But the girl didn't feel lucky.
She felt vulnerable and alone.
Given the circumstances,
you can leave early.
But she didn't want to go,
because she knew she would never see her family again.
Given the circumstances,
you should stay home for awhile.
But there is nothing she wanted more
than to get out of this hole of memories.
Given the circumstances,
She was doing ok. But that's not how it felt.
Given the circumstances,
it's better that he's gone.
But he's the only one who could make her feel like herself again.
Given the circumstances,
you should thank me.
But all she felt for the woman holding his suitcase was hatred.
Given the circumstances,
we'll let you be alone.
But she was drowning in her own thoughts and needed someone. Anyone.
