The Minister's Lonesome Daughter

Sadie walks a fine line
Sadie walks alone.
Sucks a fresh lit cigarette
beneath electric glow. 

Sunken cheeks and tear streaks
shadowing her shame.
Her eyes could paint a masterpiece
in desperation's name. 

Bare feet scraping ashpalt,
her shoes hang from her hand.
There are no angels for
this daughter of a holy man.

She meets the eyes of passerby's
then makes her way back home. 
Sadie will you ever sleep?
Or will you always roam.
