Already dead

Written on January 18, 2015: 10:35 PM The girl close her eyes She open her ears She tied her feet She cut her fingers She'll be dead soon Be here, do this, Be there, do that It is not her It is them She'll be dead soon Don't comb your hair Don't wash your hands Don't smile; Don't cry Or you'll be dead soon That's what they tell her That's how they command her That's what they wanted to do to her That's how they planned it for her They're coming They're holding her They got her They got her soul Oh she'll be dead soon She's dying; she must not She's hurting; she must not She'll be fine; she must not They told her she must not! The girl open her eyes She close her ears She untied her feet She uncut her fingers She wanted to runaway But the tears fell from her heart The girl’s already dead Before she said soon
