Potential Energy

She was pretty as a picture. Caramel skin and hazel eyes. Petite like a doll. In love with her patent leather shoes.

She grew. The light in her eyes dimmed a bit. Her nerves were raw from the yelling and tension. She learned to hide the bad and brought only the good home.

She sang in the chorus; but was never the soloist. She played on the team; but remained on the bench, She studied; but never achieved more than B’s. She knew she had more potential; but something was holding her back.
