Torn between two things she loves; husband and career.
But what is really feeding her need for success?
Oversimplified; the baby she could never have.
Combine that with kicking breast cancers ass twice in one life and yes, you can clearly see she’s broken.
Strong, reverent, determined and kind
but that only paints half the picture.
At home, the few moments shared with her husband,
she’s not present
and he takes notice.
Day after day the same routine until hope enters her minds sight; adoption.
The husband, armed with the knowledge that she’s already
overworked and non-present,
doesn’t see the point (her point) and she’s defeated once more
so returns to the life she knows,
still overworked and non-present.
The husband again takes notice,
seeing his place in her heart continue to dissipate.
She has no fight left,
she gives in on every occasion she has to truly voice her wants and needs,
yet the only compromise she’s truly making is within herself.
She wants a family, still.
Her husband wants only his wife.
What could the future possibly hold for a love grown 10+ years
between the two that’s reached such a critical crossroads?
and he holds the fix,
if only he were wise enough to know it.
