Its all built up within. He hears from all around him and cannot decide. Tearing at him. Making him question what is good. What is right in front of him. There needs to be tolerance. The voice inside him rants and raves. It causes him to wonder if she’ll change.

She’s tried to keep her word. Steps taken to make a difference. Constantly being beaten down, struck down with expectations. Wondering if what she does is enough to satisfy, enough to please. She takes in all that she is told, all that they want her to do and be.

Much time spent. Though not enough for the one nor the other. Yet still he says more space. She says just wait.
