Nothing

When will her soul begin to shine?

When will she become something remarkable?

Will she always be a nothing?

A nothing, no-one, nobody

The child, who the children of other  Mother’s were told to be nice to

The child, though she had a mother, needed mothering

What kind of future does this child have?

Why can’t the soul take over and turn her into something brand new?

Why was her life chosen to be rejected and treated cruel?

She is the child constantly pecked at

For not dressing right

For not having money

For not being pretty

For a hundred things children can dream up

When will her soul begin to shine?

Oh, but it does

When will she become something remarkable?

Oh, but she is

She a sweet loving soul

Trapped inside her culture

Born to a mother who has no time

Too busy catering to her man

To notice her poor child

Is wearing clothes long too small

Who goes hungry

Because Mom forgot to give her lunch money

She goes to school dirty and smelly

She is neglected more than anyone knows

She has so much she can give

If someone would just give her time

If someone would just love her

If someone would just take care of her

She is extraordinary

She is spectacular

If someone would just take the time

To love her

To care

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.

    Tese wods need to be read by everyone. It is amazing how much good one kind word can do. One smile. One pat on the head. One compliment. It can be the difference between dispare and hope.
