Mary Grace

The woman was
articulate, yet
offensive
putting everyone
in a predetermined
box … a Southern
caste system that
elevated herself in
no eyes other than
her own

A psychotic break
angry words…
attack…
from a young
girl’s pain
brought the
woman to
her knees
And…
her undoing
with an epiphany
an unexpected
REVELATION…

Always…I wish you peace, joy and happiness, but most of all I wish you Love.
As Ever, Annie

This poem is a reaction after reading Flannery O’Connor’s short story Revelation for a literature group I participate in each on Twitter.  If you are not familiar with this short story or author, please take time and read this and other insightful short stories she wrote about her life in the South.
