‘Mercy Mercy’, The Review
“Twin sisters separated by the cards they were dealt with. One tried to make amends for the guilt that she felt.
“Both Mercy and Celeste had a heart you can melt, but they turned into stone on the part where they fell Celeste never thought she should be begging for mercy but, Mercy felt Celeste should never have left in the first place
“Her boyfriend has got charms but he is passively aggressive and now her sister is involved and she massively regrets it. Something has gone wrong with the package she collected. Mercy sent her one guilt trip but it doesn’t have to be a death wish.
“Educated with a business, Celeste owns her own house, but now her puke had her dilated, she’s foaming in her mouth. Who’s holding her now, isolated and confused she feels like throwing in the towel. Looks up to the sky and says can you hear me now.
“In another parallel she wore her hearts on her sleeve. We all know life is hardest when we start to believe but, when hope is torn apart and dreams are hard to achieve, we all end up on our knees saying answer me please.
“When we were given life, we were actually winning but when it doesn’t go right we can’t go back to the beginning.
“The hardest stone to swallow is the fact that they were twins but for Celeste it’s too late and the room was practically spinning. 24-year-old but she died in 9mins and they can pull your heart’s strings just like the violins. When a chord strikes a chord, it reminds you they were sisters
“Just know there is more to the story and you will find in a distance. Somebody tells Mercy we can all feel her agony, screaming and kicking when she’s torn from her family. She looks back and realizes in the midst of this tragedy the last thing her sister saw was the picture on the mantle piece.”
