time flies like a startled bird
as quickly as it can.
while tree branches twist and twirl
In the eddies of the wind.
the world spins ever faster
on it's invisible axle
and nobody stops to think
they just let their mindless feet
carry them faster and faster,
the lonely girl with the raven black hair
in the body invisible
while her mind reels
with thoughts unpredictable
they taunt and tease
harm and hurt her
tell her that she's worthless
with evil smirks and ruthless chuckles
she ponders the unthinkable
wondering if that choice is better
than staying here
an emotional beggar
looking for what no one wants to give
searching for the thing that keeps itself hidden
she thinks it might be easier
to leave behind her burden
and let go of everything
loosen her grasp on that icy handle
and let herself fall
towards that raging river.
think on this
please think hard
what you do and say
including those you never stop to see or hear
just because you don't see something
doesn't mean it's not there.
just like the girl, with the raven black hair.
