October Child

" ...October's child is born for woe,
And life's vicissitudes must kno
But lay an opal on her breast,
And hope will lull those woes to rest..."

In the mornings light was born a maiden. With an aura of mystical abyss. Though only hint of this was glimpsed through penetrating eye stare. She had a mysterious wisdom and witt, that when those who listen, understand her word. She was mortal and young though. So she knew in order to live, she must make mistakes. Even if she knew how unwise it was. She wanted reason to live. She wanted a thing to love.
Though years of her life she felt alone. What is the Maiden of morning light to do.

"All things truly wicked start from innocence."

Time works on all things. The effects of time have grown on the maiden of morning light. At her time she subsists as 11 years of age. Nearing her birthday where she diverts to the 12th year of life. The maiden mourns for time has grown the people tired of her wisdom. Time has grown them apart. She sobers for time, the thing that destroys her connections. The maiden sits silently on near her window. She is foucused on the night sky. She ponders that maybe somewhere out there holds the answers to all she lacks. Something that will fill her dreams, with the stuff of reality. Or someone...

"Understanding can overcome any situation, however mysterious or insurmountable it may appear to be."

On the morning near her hour, she the maiden is on her knees. Her old defectioness way of thinking has alas caught up with her. As it does to all souls in the infamy of time. She though has still the mark of mystery and depth that stayed with her since birth. She is birthed to understand, but while looking she forgot to know thy self. All of intimacy in comprehension...shattered. All dearness in its call....ruptured. All she thought what was is a lie. But to her now it is not what wasn't that matters. What matters is what couldn't that have come to be.
She now has none, she now is herself. Engaged in deep thought she looks back to the sky as the day marked in history of her birthday comes to an ending. Her thought is within the unknown realms now...
