Sunday Postcard - City Girl

Sadie was a rebel, a word weaver,
a dreamer and midnight believer
She flew in the face of decorum
She chased life’s treasures
In indiscriminate pleasures
If given rules, she’d ignore ‘em
As her days filled with regret
She tried vainly to forget
Empty promises and broken dreams
A rogue wind that saddled lightning
Life’s storms became all too frightening
Alas, Sadie lost her way, so it seems
But she’d heard of  “due diligence”
She drew on her resilience
And learned from her checkered past
She made better choices
And now she rejoices
Sadie’s chartered a new course at last.
