A Little Girl Is Crying


A life that didn't stand a chance
destroyed before it began
like a sacrifice to the slaughter

A little girl is crying
her mother is in denial
a street full of people
everybody watching
but nobody looking

A little girl is crying
as her father sells ice and crack
for the devil and his crew


A little girl is crying

    Often we become passive spectators to others misfortune....! We never bother to lift even a little finger to reduce another's pain....! Some are so callous that they enjoy seeing the tears of their fellow beings! Let no child cry on the streets unattended! (Report) Reply

    Thought provoking write dear Dave. It reminds us of our reluctant and dumb attitude towards the unpleasant things happening on streets!

    Great write. Stirring the minds of public to reciprocate the right way at times. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
