She wrote that requiem for her dream herself when she decided to put her stuff away. 
She had to,for family. She agreed.
This is what had to be done. 
Dream but dream only till you are told you stop.
Have ambition but in a lesser degree lest your potential partner is intimidated by you.
These were the adages that she was brought up by-she was expected to abide.
She worked hard and was married off to a guy she barely knew. 
Before she could start questioning the point of it all,she was raped by her husband.
He raped her for she knew too much and this simply implied that she had to be subjugated and made docile. 
She was too worldly wise,a loose woman,definitely. 
Rather than bringing shame upon the family,he beat her black and blue. Everyday,as the sun went down.
These beatings refused to dissolve her resolve but gradually as the number of broken bones increased,she accepted the adages that her mother had taught her and decided to bring her daughter up with the same.
