by N.E. Fonyuyson
Our personal choices often conflict with the magnanimity with which building stable relationships require. Rose-Mary and her daughter, Angel, have, for the most part, lived as strangers to one another, treading separate self-destructive paths. They are only re-united by Rose-Marys eminent demise.
Rose-Mary, being the mother, carries most of the blame for their failed relationship. Such a responsibility as reconciliation, forgiveness, and unity cannot wipe out. What is needed is absolutionthat all powerful deliverance which surpasses the mere idea of forgive and be forgiven.
In the end, it is Rose-Marys voice that redeems her. Her voice called Joshua to her. It is not him who seeks her. She is the author of her own cleansing. Joshua is a pawn. Rose-Mary dies in peace, fully aware of what treasure family is. Angel mourns and weeps not with sadness, not for her loss. She cries for that which she has gained: love. She falls in love with new consciousness. Again, Joshua is the agent of her rescue, the vessel, the message bearer.
