Nuevo Corazon

As the words spilled onto the page, Rosa felt a loosening in her chest. The darkness and pain that she’d tamped down as far as it could go had blackened her soul and stolen her joy. But as she wrote “no” and how she fought back, she saw her courage and made a decision. She would embrace her new ink heart. It wouldn’t be as warm or as caring but it was hers and no one would take it from her.
