Nobody's Child

Her chapped palms smell of -ungrateful jasmine- roughened by shrewd plays of world. And in the creases of - youthful forehead- sleeps an orphaned childhood, old. Among distasteful leering, ineffectual rags of -modesty cries- unfortunate beauty trapped among -lechers- pawn broker and hawker alike. -Nobody’s Child - gazes high UP , at the S K Y S C R A P E R S , elegant unreachable stairs winding beyond clouds yonder. S L O W L Y sighing, At the dreams hidden, on the dark side of half bitten moon.

Longing for hope in the midst of tragedy. Uniquely written. This is the first time I've read a poem on this subject matter. Well expressed!
