This Time

This Time

A Poem by {someone:.:unknown}

this small girl in the corner
with her head down and shaking
she's been crying this whole time
trapped within her own dimension..

her hope was lost when her dad had left,
her faith was gone when her mom kept hitting her,
her love was only a puzzle when there was no one to care,
the kindness everyone showed only became confusing to her.

after all this time,
one window has finally opened.
dozens have opened before
but when she had tried to climb out,
they'd close right then and there.

this time is different she wished
with all that's left of her hope and faith..
this time this window will stay open for her.
this time she can walk outside..
this time she'll be held tightly and kept safe.

before she climbed out she looked to her side,
one little monkey and one wall mirror.
the little stuffed monkey filled with such memories,
and when she looked up at the mirror she only saw one thing
she realized she could smile, she finally found herself.

I look out the window,
"It's finally time for me to be free."
this whole time this lonely girl had been I,
i finally found the one, there's no reason to cry..

She found herself and is free.. the poem is sad but it ends with hope and dry eyes.
Emotions are well expressed. Poems of children and their sorrows make me sad!
Good writing.

inside my own lost soul, IN

So i'm a womanly person that enjoys the simplicities of life. i love looking through antique shops, i'm a huge cuddle bug, although i act like a toughy sometimes i still like being treated like a girl.. more..
