She calls it a "do."
She had, she says, a bit of a "do."
And in that short word,
Accompanied with the wide eyes
That see everything but the room we are now in,
There is everything else she has been through.
Other rooms, with locks on the outside,
With bars on the windows,
And check-ups every half-hour.
Other times, with weighted seconds
Holding back the hours
Except when they all came at once,
The minutes rushing at her,
Especially those she had already lived through.

She calls it a "do."
A bit of a "do."
And how can I not admire her for it?
Because I have my own word for it.
And it is still a very long way
From something I could ever pronounce
So lightly.

Hi, Please be wise, do not make the same mistake I had made in the past, I was a victim of bitcoin scam, I saw a glamorous review showering praises and marketing an investment firm, I reached out to them on what their contracts are, and I invested $55,000, which I was promised to get my first 15% profit in weeks, when it’s time to get my profits, I got to know the company was bogus, they kept asking me to invest more and I ran out of patience then requested to have my money back, they refused to answer nor refund my funds, not until a friend of mine introduced me to Lost Recovery Masters, so I reached out and after tabling my complaints, they were swift to action and within 36 hours I got back my funds with the due profit. I couldn’t contain the joy in me. I urge you guys to reach out to Lost Recovery Masters on their support
