What If One Of Them Survives?
Will she be condemned?
Or be met with surprise?
Would she burn at the stake?
For trying to rise?
Would the children of her mind
And the creature leashed inside
Kindle a spark?
Or would they rather join
The chest of lost treasures,
Never to found again, deep under the soil?
Perhaps they would be tamed,
Be taught to behave
Under the glint of knives,
Or perhaps they would burn away
Before even the dawn of their lives,
But even with despair as she turns around
Again, walks to home without a sound,
She wonders – What if, what if,
Just one of them survives?
