Too Young For This

You were innocent sweet and young
With a life that just begun
Years of friends, learning and dreams
Every minute always seemed
To be filled with something new
Fun. laughter, happiness too
Your life's path was going well
Until something bad befell
On your world to make you lose
Control, now your paying dues
Of decisions that were filled
When you saw your parents killed
By a stranger who just took
A knife as your scared eyes looked
Seeing the most horrid sight
The death of your parents that night
Your head spun and didn't know
Where to run or where to go
So you let yourself be driven
Into a world you shouldn't live in
Everyday just being used
By those who like to abuse
Young people who can't survive
With the pain brought in their lives
Relying on the help of strangers
Too fragile to know the dangers
Of the lies they hear each day
By offenders that just prey
Looking for lost lonely souls
Who can't make it on their own

    I hope this is fiction and did not happen to you or a loved one. Deep, strong and emotional; kudos, Sweet Pea! <3
