Lonely Young Woman

The lonely little girl grew up
To be a vivacious young woman
The smile that graced her face
Not entirely the same
Her resolve slowly cracking
For that she had nobody to blame

She lost the footing
That once she used to ground
Trust, she could no longer revive
Not of herself, nor of those around
So did the only thing she could
Living as she would just to survive

Moving on was a pretence to be kept
Something amiss from her story
Now glazed the once passionate eyes
Masking the fear or making up for the lack fury
The wrongs she continued to suffer
Never got a day in front of the jury

The vow of silence she continued to keep
Screaming away her pain quietly
In the dead of night she continued to weep
Life is oft not fair that much is knew
Justice would be served if God existed
She prayed softly for her faith to renew.


Lonely Little Girl

There was a lonely little girl
Walking through a tunnel
She was alone, but not by choice
She smiled, content with loneliness
Minding her thoughts
Feelings, she chose not to voice

She knew the world was cruel
No place for her fragile kind
For she was soft, like the snow
On the pale winter ground
Or soft as the grass
When summer was around

She smelled of roses
When it was spring
Of jasmine when
The moon came out to sing
She bloomed like the sunflowers
As the sun took its place as king

A gentle soul, untouched
She remained, unscathed
By the evil in the surround
Though it wasn’t long
Before her strong resolve crumbled
Her weakness was found

Prodded and poked
Pinched and choked
Until her gentle spirit
All but died
The loneliness remained
But long gone was the smile.
