A/N: Had to write something for an English presentation so I thought that I might as well post this. I have also written a companion fic on Ruby's thoughts in the form of a poem. Hope you enjoy!

I was raised to be lively and attentive company

And hence I was able to live life comfortably

Yet now that you are gone

I go through each day alone and reluctantly

Father I would have followed you come what may

But you have unknowingly led me astray

I'm forced to admit that I don't know the skills to survive

And from now on every day will be a working day

You tried to keep me as a child

Yet now the resentment I held for you is mild

I am now part of a family and have gained independence

And I no longer feel isolated in the wild
