Dublin poet Laura Cleary presents a woman’s journey through marriage, motherhood and old age. In this series of tender monologues, we see a human being's hope to succeed, will to survive and ability to cope with even the bitterest truths.

‘I know what I sound like. And I know I should have tried. Even if just to fail.

I should have.

I just couldn’t.

I just—

I couldn’t.’
