Little Girl Lost

She doesn’t understand the state of the world,

Why everyone is so angry all the time,

And why no one seems to have time for her,

Her mind is too young to comprehend why it hurts so bad,

There isn’t a soul who cares about her

Or so she thinks

So, she stays in the dark,

Because that way they won’t be able to find her…

Maybe if she closes her eyes..

She’s too inexperienced to call for help,

And slowly withers away

Too consumed with their lives to notice

The people around her miss the signs

She disappears…

Life continues on

And we’re too late.
