433 – Alone

No one believed her.

Detailed truths
And ample proof
Were not enough
To back her.

An army of
If’s, why’s and but’s
Marched into the timeline
And occupied the narrative.

She stood alone
Against a loaded dice,
Fighting a battle
Already declared lost.

Until, one by one,
The quiet faces
Stopped whispering
And rose around her.

The world
Suddenly realized
She had an army
Of her own.
