Branded a Widow
Yes I am a widow certainly not by choice there was no fortune gained here as in the movies. Peg me if you like as the pre-conceived notions certainly come to mind if I admit to my status.
W- Weak/ Wreckless
I am all these things and more. Branded with a W on my forehead I am now in a different prefix. Am I a Mrs? A Miss? What would Miss Manners say and by the way who cares?
As a Widow I will decide from this point on who I will be and what I will do with my life. Single by death I stand alone. Do not shun me, it is not catching. All around me will not die and shrivel up. Nor should you fear that I will take what's yours.
Loneliness is a state of mind while you decide what you want to be in the unwanted company of one. All my strengths and weaknesses will come to play as I make this new life. So fear me not, I am a widow after nothing but happiness and not yours, my own.
