When she looked she saw the same old view,
Different faces, even different places,
But still the same.
Still the same.
The breath inside her drove up and out in a sad exhalation,
Unplanned, unconscious, unthinking,
Again they told her things have changed,
Its a brand new world, glitter strewn and crisp.
Whatabout, they said, remember when.
But she saw nothing fresh,
she looked hard, so hard,
there it was, not what she wanted to see, but there.
But we dreamed, she cried, we hoped,
You claimed to be on our side, we stood together.
Be patient, you said, the time will come.
