She stands alone in the shadows,
The sky darkened gray by her heart
Fighting for survival, too young to know, pain deeply engraved in her heart.
Tears sting her eyes,
Though she must never cry.
Blocking all emotions, too young, too young to know why.
In the depths of her mind, she clings to hope and truth,
Harshness of her life has taken all of her youth.
With a soul that longs for freedom,
She can feel a yearning, raging within, her very being
Reaching out, desperate for someone to understand,
Someone to know where she has been, too young to feel all
Life’s burdens, you can see hurt buried deep in her eye’s.
No more can she feel cold as ice,
But sheds the years of never ending pain,
As she begins to cry.
~Willow Raven Sage~
