Only viewed in darkness Only seen as one thing
A negative They see her alone
Slut! Disgusting! Stupid! Shot like bullets their word squeez Salty tears out of her eyes
She goes home to a house of anger and disappointment
She shut the door whose now her only friend Isolates herself...
loneliness is her new found comfort
With a small faint cry, she takes Soft yet firm steps,
out of the darkness Clearing her path
Pain and suffering slowly get pushed aside.
At a small white bassinet
Their eye meet sharing the phrase “Your safe now, no harm will come to you”
Her finger caressed the small child cheek A smile replaces the tears that once filled her face
She feels the warmth from her child’s embrace
Standing in the light that is hidden in the dark
She begins to tell of a tale we have all heard from the start
Once upon a time A girl was young and in love
She had created a beautiful gift for her lover But he had betrayed her
So she kept the gift Despite what many had said
Now she's left with a new beginning to a bitter end
Only seen through the innocent eyes of a sweet child Can one find
The light in every kingdom of darkness.
