Fire

He burnt down
her store,
her home by the sea,
and destroyed
her life,
and her dream.

Starting over
with nothing,
she rebuilt her life
from scratch.

  10. A person could write for about a hundred years on something like that. To start from scratch is a miracle, alot of people would retreat into a cave and not come out.

  12. Sherry,
    An all too common experience, of revenge everywhere.
    The strength to rebuild and start again, brings hope from ashes......
