    She found a picture of her great-grandmother.
    She’d heard the stories, the scandalous rumors,
    whispered still in her grandma’s day, family secret.
    But she knew how it felt to blend in with walls,
    be ignored, expectations of seen and not heard
    so she followed her GG’s example, packed a valise
    and left. She was a wild flower in a bed of wall flowers
    and her grand-daughters rise up and praise her.
