 She had all the battle scars
Of a soldier at war
She was neglected and abused
Abandoned and refused
Unwanted and unloved
She wished  for the wings of a dove

So she could fly far away
From her troubles today
To escape from the pain
 From the stress and the strain

With tears in her eyes
She slept under starry skies
Out in the cold
With no one to hold
Unable to cope 
She had lost all hope

    Joesph, this is a very touching subject. Many will read this and relate to this kind of abuse or other forms of abuse. God, bless us all, especially the one's who found the strength in knowing we are not alone..... Congratulations, in Susan's "ABUSE" contest... Goodnight **PD
