Emma took the blows

Emma took the blows
one to her head
and one to her soul.

It had been her wish
It had been her hope
But perhaps their words were true
and she had been wrong all along

Emma laid there
defeated, wounded and tired.
Tired, of it all.

She had been hit down before,
But never with such strength.
Never so overwhelming.
Never so brutal.

It had been her dream
Her longing
Had she been foolish to follow it?

Here they were,
Saying she should not.
Saying she could not.
…and perhaps they were right.

Yet at that moment
her heart spoke
softly, but strong.

“No,” it whispered,
“Your dream is still yours
And it will remain yours till the end
For in your dream lays your destiny.”

“But I cannot!” Emma cried.
“Why? Because they sat so?” the heart went on
“I say you can and I say you must. Listen,
for I know you best.”

Emma had taken the blows
one to her head
and one to her soul

But none to her heart
Where she treasured her dream
and from there she would continue to dream

Until she had achieved it
Blows or no blows
Her dream was hers
And her heart would lead her to her destiny.

Stefanie: Ich bin positiv von dieser Geschichte überrascht. Es handelt von tollen starken Charakteren. Und es zeigt einem, wie stark Freunde gemeinsam sein können.

dtjenkins5: A good read with all the complexities of relationships. The twists and turns of the plot add a special dimension.

FiU: Zum Dahinschmelzen. Tolle Geschichte. Hoffe auf Band 2 über die besten Freunde.Bitte mehr Zeit für die Rechtschreibung aufwenden.

Erika: Yooo where’s the second part?!

nizaly: Muy bonita historia y divertida.gracias

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: Cannot imagine all that went on in Annalisa had going on in her life the past 2 years... then to top it off with her dad stepping in taking care of everything her an Eagle would need yet expecting nothing in return. Yes, it's a book, but nothing can stop the dreaming.

2jlynn: How can people do such horrible things... especially to the innocent? My heart hurts thinking of what is reality for some individuals. My life may not be "storybook", but comparatively speaking, there is nothing to complain about.
