Alfa spins an image of struggle.

She has moments where she looks up,
and is taken aback at the heavy sky
as it meets blowing trees with outstretched limbs.
And she tries to decipher a defining line
-the place where they connect and lock-in so flawlessly…
and she feels as though she belongs somewhere in the middle
of their natural and accepting love.
Her spirit screams to leap,
and discard the darkness
that is encased in the unforgiving earth
she wrestles in.
