Belisa has survived abandonment, starvation, and relocation, proving that she is a strong peopson. Because of her drive to survive, Belisa is able to drag herself out of poverty and build a new life for herself with the power of words. She is dedicated to this focused mission until she meets The Colonel. Only then does she realize that the words she has depended on can give her what she truly desires: “There was more to [her acceptance] than [fear], however; she felt the urge to help him because she felt a throbbing warmth beneath her skin, a powerful desire to touch that man, to fondle him, to clasp him in her arms ” (Allende 141). Belisa feels a deep passion for this man, a physical desire to which she is unaccustomed. This love motivates her to take on a new mission: a relationship with The Colonel. This lesson is one that Franklin also demonstrates in her song. In this classic love song, the Franklin croons that “Before the day [she] met [her lover], life was so unkind/ But [his] love was the key to [her] peace of mind”(Franklin). The speaker was in a bad place before she found love, and his love is what she needs to bring her comfort and inspiration, which is shown further when she says, “Now I'm no longer doubtful of what I'm living for / Cause if I make you happy I don't need to do more” (Franklin). She now knows what and who she wants and has a purpose in her life. The music backs up these feelings as the strings and trumpets swell when she sings the joyful lines and sink when she sings the melancholy lines. She truly sees that difference between her old and new selves as a result of this life-changing relationship. She uses her skills in a new way to get what she wants, just as the singer looks at life in a new way because of her newfound love.
