the world within me

Chapter 74
Child's cry

Child’s cry

Listen to that little girl

She cries out to the sky

Searching eyes that scan

Further, farther high

Listen to that little girl

People see her tears

But no one stops to watch

Them fall over the years

Listen to that little girl

What precious laughter hold

But no more laughter spurred forth

Those tears of ice so cold

What else but in dear embrace

Did she look the sun light bright

The rays that shone through the hole

Where she tried to stand and fight

Tired, burnt and sorrowful

What joy had filled her heart

When she jumps, leaps for joy

And from fear she lives apart

Listen to the little girl

Her sobs ever present

But a hope she holds so dearly

A hope from God’s heaven

The little girl is sadness

The little girl always longs

She dreams impossible dreams

And sings the most hopeful songs
