Too Quick, Too Soon

You're fat Yelled at Abused Misused Sad sighs Soft cries Left home To roam The streets Not sweet Too quick Turned tricks Too soon Was ruined On dope No hope In jail No bail Unsung Died young

Methinks you meant to type 'cascade' instead of 'cavalcade' --- but the latter brought a smile to my face. ~ Gershon

A sad story to completion. There is no way of compromising with wrong. Wrong is wrong -- . Excellent read and message!

Footles are, indeed, addictive. At least they're 'good addictive!' Blessings, Gershon

Terribly sad, but also sometimes true. The saddest thing is that it could've been avoided if someone had only taken the time to care. Nicely done, Gershon.

So true, Evelyn. Or perhaps caring parenting would have saved the day. Thank you, Gershon
