it’s just a whole

She knew this day would come and the choice she’d have to make. But as it finally comes,
Maya cannot wrap her head around it. A mole - it’s so small, so insignificant, just a mark...
How can it be so hard to part from it? Can Maya ever feel whole again when a bit of her is
taken away?
