Where is she going and where has she been.
She is the most hopeless soul you have ever seen
Why is she out there why so alone .
Does no one miss her, has she no loving home.
Where are her parents , her teachers and friends
Is this all that is left to her, is this hopelessness where she ends.
Out in all weather, aimless, sharing a bench with the old men in the park.
Scrounging for coffee and scraps of food at back doors of the restaurants after dark.
Her Mother’s boyfriend was too fond of her,her Mum to frightened or to busy to care
Her teachers uncaring didn’t notice the signs, her lost weigh and dull eyes, a sudden loss of all flair.
It all came to a head when her Mum found her with HIM in bed.
Mum wouldn’t listen to a word that she said.
He had raped her, she had pleaded her case .
But her Mum had screamed at her and then slapped her face
So now lost and lonely with no where to go
She wonders the big city her fears in full flow.
No one to love her no one to care she is homeless and helpless and underage.
Already she is changing , she has stolen for drink her life’s spiraling downward and her head’s full of rage.
Why had Mum not listened , why had Mum let him push her out
She lost and she is hopeless prey to demons and doubt………………….
