In Vain

Prompted by cue-art#5 at Shafali’s Creativity Carnival

sCCcue5~Poem: In vain

Vanessa was a vain lass
she wore it plain for all to see
and oh so career driven
she had soon passed fertility.
She couldn’t hide her sadness
in her eyes it was revealed,
being barren and childless
her regret she tried to conceal.
