[101] Reconcile

She sat in a corner.

Hugging herself, she looked out towards the window. She did not know what to think. Looking down, she carressed her empty womb, wanting for a spark of life. Her thoughts wandered.

I want a place for my child. I want a place, or a country, where she can grow up and not fear as I did.

I want a place to raise my children without fear of them being taken away.

She finally admitted it to herself, the realisation shattering her being completely.

I want a child that cannot be.
A tear rolled down her cheek.
