A Girl

A smiling girl

drowning in her tears

for the world will never see

all of what she hears.

A brave girl

fear, pushed to the back of a shelf

is scared of the one thing that can hurt her


A kind girl

raised with insults and violence

is broken deep down inside

for no one else can see the many hours she's cried.

A dying girl

smiles inside for all of her troubles are gone

her eyes shine brighter than ever before

finally, she is happy and strong
