Just a child

Her eyes turned grey,
what had she done that day?
the clouds they hovered above her head,
following her where ever she had lead,
the skies, they began to cry,
in sync with her own tears, she couldnt lie,
she fell to her knees, from the pain within,
she couldnt do it anymore, this fight she couldnt win,
these spherical drops all falling around,
finally she understood and continued sobbing without a sound,
all her hurt, all the things she could no longer bare,
she felt that the heavens were in pain, so they could share,
they understood each other, understood the pain,
and so together, they contributed to the rain.

As minutes turned to hours, she felt herself being carried away,
but she wanted this too, so nothing did she say,
she watched as people passed her by,
no one even forcing her to lie,
she was a shadow in this world,
nothing more but a small insignificant girl,
they couldnt care anymore, she was too much trouble,
so she retreated into her little bubble,
where the world fell away,
and she could have her say,
where no one would hurt, there was no pain,
then it hit her, a sudden rush of tormentation, all over again,
and no one her her screams her pleads of it to stop,
she was always ignored, even that cop,
when she asked him to help, he brushed her off for being a child,
even when she called for help, 000 she dialed,
still they resided to believe her claim,
all the things that troubles her mind, she is shamed,

but still she fights to see this light of hope that might not even exist,
but she doesnt think she deserves what she already has, all of this...
