	HER

	By Angela Keshishyan


	All HER life she's felt trapped.
	Trapped, blocked, choked.
	No air, no life, no chance

	SHE tried to gasp for air
	But SHE was stopped,
	Stripped of the right
	Chained, buckled, beaten down


	NO!  No SHE was told.
	And what was this word?
	This word that stopped HER?
	Why did it stand in HER way?

	Was it that powerful, this word?
	NO!
	No SHE heard until her final moment
	Until no more air was left
	No chance, no crack,
	No!

	So what happens to HER thoughts, ideas, beliefs, chances?

	It is gone with HER.
	Forever.
	Where no one can ever hear
	HER.

	The world has lost
	Another voice is silenced
	Another love is forbidden
	Another chance is gone
