Dive in!

They told her to try,
She knew it better,
But still tested her nerves,
May be solace could come in handy.

She had done it before,
The results no different,
Something always seemed misfit,
But she was not a weakling.

“Baby, could you dive in”,
The pit so deep in.
Tired of herself,
People thought she was pushover.

“Anything for you, love”,
She said and dived in.
The onlookers throttled,
Anxiety was far from her.

Never knew who she was.
A brave heart or a torn one.
But rattled were they who had
Tormented her. Bullied her.

But the warrior was determined,
World’s no haven, she agreed
Finally. And life thought so too
Time she donned a mask.

  1. I think a heart can sometimes be both brave and torn.

    1. Sometimes I feel masks save you ... ! It takes huge amount of courage to unmask and huge amount of despair when you decide to mask yourself.
      So glad you liked it Kalpana :)

  7. This is awesome work but are you sure you've used the correct definition? Trifecta accepts only the third definition of a given word (unless otherwise noted). It sounds like here that you may have used definition 2. It would be unfortunate if you'd be disqualified from possibly winning due to a technicality.
