Little Girl

Little girl With her visions and prayers... Suffering in silence from endless nightmares. A broken family So much responsibility... Hurting deep inside so other's can't see. Giant, gentle eyes Penetrate the soul The little girl sees more than anyone knows. Empathic virtues Create bountiful waves Breaking these chains the pitiful enslaves Wide open heart Locked up and jailed pride She's able to let go of her anger inside. Unable to stay Trapped in time She knew to go forward, she had to stop 'rewind' Frozen for a moment The ice melts away The sun warms her heart in a motherly way. Infinite excuses Become lessons learned Gratitude is given, and so it is earned Innocent little girl, All hope invested in Heaven Learned the secret of her life before she was 7 Her lesson was hard Fighting darkness with a match Finding the spark that ignites with nothing to scratch But through all the bad She searched for the good And finally she found it upon where she stood So listen to me close And take this seriously I know for a fact this is fact...because that little girl... was me.
