what do you see

what do you see

A Poem by Courtney Hough

You see the beauty in her?
Yeah, the world once did too.
Until her mind became her own,
And then her body.
Now she can’t see that beauty.
The compassion,
The love.
It’s all fading.
Like a distant memory.
She knows who she is,
But no one can accept it,
And for that she cannot accept this world. 

Made to live in solace… until she returns home.

This offering seems to be about someone who has been ostracized by others for reasons which are not revealed. The last line is particularly puzzling. I relate the word "solace" to peace, but we are told the subject of the work was "made" to live in it until she returns home. I don't know what to make of it.

Solace is her mind because she cannot live in the world.
