The Merit Report

She saw the merits she had worked for

The accolades

The coveted reward

Most people looked forward to.

And then she knew the answer.

When she realized that they did not matter,

She finally knew where she belonged.

She expected warmth

When she found the document again. But all she felt was strange detachment.

And inward smile she did not understand.

A feeling that this was someone else’s life.

Essentially no feeling at all.
