Once there was a little girl
She was her family’s pearl
happy and content
to play and learn.
She was a girl of high spirits
bringing smiles to all those who had lost one.
But little did she know
that her own smile would be lost forever.
She would be torn from her home
and would be lost as an Orphan.
Nobody would look twice at the little girl
whose eyes had lost the twinkle
drowned in the deepest waters
dark and lonely
looking around for someone
but alas ! She found no one!
Still she pushed herself up
to the surface and out
Still she smiled her fake smile
to keep spreading joy !
She had grown in her dark times
was now mature and understood her fate !
She steadied herself before it was too late !
Her laughter no more merry
was hollow and meaningless!
People thought her crazy
“She has lost her mind !” they said.
But the girl never looked back
at them to retort
just kept moving on!
What was the girl’s fault ?
from the innocent girl
who was her family’s pearl
She had turned into someone she barely knew
evaporating after the morning dew.
But she never whined or cried
was resilient and persevered
having no choice
she moved on and on
running away from herself
angry at the world
for taking her life away !
Gone with the wind was the sound of her voice
it has been ages since she has had a reason to rejoice !
