She has red hair

And thoughtful eyes

They’ve seen a lot

And she’s holding something back.

She moves with purpose

Her voice is quiet

She’s said a lot

But now she’s listening.

She doesn’t react

Her smile is distant

She’s smiled a lot

At too many things.

She remains aloof

She listens and thinks

Processing things for herself

For a change.

It’s her choice.
