a young girl blows out her 14 candles no big party for her
all her friends left her,  her family barley speaks to her
stares all day long and whispers as she walks the school halls 
everyone tries to shames her.  she dons her fake face and her waving confidence 
but behind close doors the front always falls 
tick tock tick tock time is closing in she knows 
she lost her way and must find a path
what is right? what is wrong?
what is selfish? what is giving?
questions, questions she can not ignored 
but the answers she can not find
the hourglass drops it last grain of sand 
she is out of time 
in her right arm she cradles a new life and her left she grips a pen
