Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!
Audrey Hepburn

In one seething black mass,
a horrid thing not yet to pass,
it hangs overhead
hurting with things not said.
It follows me around.
Unwillingly I am bound.
I try in vain to pull away,
the more I resist, the longer it stays.
She is a cousin, family,
but its her they see, not me.

The author's comments:
This is about the story of many, a life lived in someone else's shadow.

I liked it! :) It had good rhythm and if I hadn't read the tittle it would have made me wonder what it was. The ending was wonderful!
