Walk With HerA Poem by Cattie Rain (Angela)
She trudged along the sidewalk
Dusty feet and broken smile
On her back a load of burdens
Stacked nigh twenty miles high
She's passed so many people
Who stare at her with such disdain
Some click their tongues in pity
Yet the leave her in the rain
She tries to hold her head up high
Stumbling down this old cracked road
She longs to see a friendly smile
But she's forced to walk alone
Exhausted now, she sits to rest
She lays her burden down
People rush to swarm around her
Full of anger they gather round
"Just who do you think you are?" they shout
"You get no time to rest!
The very last thing that you deserve
Is peace and happiness!"
With teary eyes and broken heart
She stands up to face her trial
Wishing someone out there cared enough
To simply walk with her awhile
