It is never too late for anyone to discover his/herself in life. Discovering this talent of writing makes me feel elated...
In their land, people cherish gods, they are enjoined not to take a step without consulting the oracles yea the gods.
This her parents did because they need to find someone for their daughter a reputable person who will take care of her.
For they know if she did not get someone who is from a "good" family, such a one may not take proper care of their daughter for them.
In that part of the world, they still follow ancient beliefs about marriage. One of the beliefs is that parents should take a spouse for their daughter or son because being young (sons and daughters), they won't know much about the family backgrounds of different clans or families in their land.
This her parents equally designed to do thence consulting the gods.
This is the second in the series.
This her parents divulged to her
Because they know she loves
Things of the spirits, love gods
And should agree with them
Accepting their findings.
For it is the norm of the land
That parents find lovers for their wards
Having made researches
Thus they haven't acted differently from others
She tried to key in to their
Findings yea the belief of the land
On this wise because to the
People of the land, it's a taboo
To reject such honor, findings
And revelations by the gods
As best as she tries to succumb
To their wish and fell heads over heels
In love with the Young Chap
She discovers she couldn't
Because her heart increasingly
Goes away from the Young Man
And if perhaps she has had inkling
Of feelings for him before
Such has been eroded with her
Parents utterances and the gods choice
She tries to examine herself
Perhaps something is wrong
With her for others like her
Accepts their parents' wishes
Whether or not revealed and
Sanctioned by the gods of the land
She could not do this
This therefore pricked her mind
Thinking something must be amiss
Somewhere thinking something
Must be wrong with her
"Am I at war with the gods?
"Am I not on the war path with
"The gods?" She asks herself repeatedly
Like a proverb of their land
That says "emitted rays of light
From a lantern cannot and will
Not cover the base of the lantern"
She decides to sample opinion
From others about herself.
She asks to know if anything
Is wrong with her from people.
She asks if her personality
Among other things about her
Have changed but the response
Was that all was "okay" with her
