She put on a brave face

Through all of her nightmares…
She Put on a brave face…
Through her fear and terror…
She put on a brave face…
Through her sorrow and pain…
She put on a brave face…
Through her betrayal and anguish…
She put on a brave face…
Through her indescribeable pain…
She put on a brave face…
Though her heart was broken…
She put on a brave face…
She reached for the light…
She started anew…
She chose to triumph…
She is new…
She puts on a brave face…
I love her.
Edited and layered in Photoshop CS5 using 4 of my own images and 7 texture layers.
