Before the changes, she was just a normal woman living her life. Going to work, feeding her children and enjoying her marriage to a wonderful husband.
That was before the changes though, now she is barely alive, having seen horrors and destruction beyond anything that she could have imagined.
She watched her children die of starvation. Her husband had succumbed to madness, killing himself shortly after the stars faded away. She watched as
her neighbors murdered one another for food hidden in their houses, and the left overs of once lush and green gardens.
In the end she was alone. The last of her kind within 100 miles. Surviving off of canned food no one else wanted to eat and rancid, scum filled water
pooled at the bottom of once clear and shiny pools. She knew she didn't have much longer to live. It was getting harder and harder to find what she

Yet, you strive ahead alone.
Face Death's brother Fear.
Don't let us forget you were here.
Echo's of the past
make your life so bad.
You cling t
As her hand fell away from the page, her poem unfinished. Her vacant eyes stared up at the black abyss. She was one of the last bastions of life on
the tiny planet known as Earth, stubbornly holding on as long as she could, for reasons she will never know.
