Pride and Prejudice

Problems arise in a family when it is
Revealed that without marriage of daughters
Into advantageous families very soon
Death of the gentleman father will result in
Evacuation of the family into the streets

A rich handsome visitor to an estate nearby
Now presents a good opportunity for the
Dilemma stricken family to escape their fate

Pinned by love, another gentleman woos one
Remarkably beautiful daughter, who hates him
Every day his love for her grows, but she finds
Joy in acquainting herself with another person
Unknown to her, the gentleman’s love is true
Devious is her acquaintance’s trust, she soon finds
Intrigued by the good heart of the gentleman
Close she becomes to him, and in the end, is
Engaged to him, bringing to an end, a brilliant story

For:

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
