She fell

straight to the ground.

Every one heard

the loud crash

of her skull

hitting the ground.

They saw the blood

yet

she opened her eyes

they were green

empty of delight.

She had died

and came

back alive.

What could be next?

She

could only cry

at first when her eyes

opened wide and wide

so many people surrounded her

so many that

didn't even 

know

her name.

She stood up and 

ran as fast as she could

for some strange reason

that she did not 

know

she was alive

and not as dead and cold

as dirt

She cried tears

of mixed feelings.

tears that held many years

of yearning and

need.

She fell so many feet

down and down.

Most would've died.

But she

is alive.

She did not know

the reason.

But for now on

she will know 

that the true reason

is to 

live
