It's hard for her to watch four turn into three.
For her to sit back and be forced to wait and see.
As a gigantic piece of her life is removed from her view, she readjusts her eyes and there are only two.
Her sisters are the only ones who were always there.
Repeatedly reminding her that life is never fair.
Warning her to choose carefully her friends.
And she listened to every word, ears opened wide, though she pretends.
She acts as though she's mature enough to understand what they're really talking about.
Even though her mind wonders with lots of doubts.
Doubts about love, pressure, and fear.
She goes to sleep as the doubts disappear.
She wakes to the heat from the morning sun, she opens her eyes and she's left with one.

This poem is meaningful, abstract but yet easy to understand.The simplicity in creating rhymes from a line to the other is what I like the most in the poem. Keep up the good work!
