interconnected (vi)

grown up and dark she went 
as far away as she could manage, 
wanting only the space to make 
her own decisions. 

she didn't need a fancy life: 
simple things she loved meant more 
that lots of things for show. 

in a country village, teaching, 
where she spoke with a strange accent, 

but where people knew her
and if they liked her, it was

for her
