Baby Girl

Deep within her, a sting is hidden,
A hidden sting never spoken of,
Forever lay in darkness, watching;
By the paths lay before others.
The sting in her, untold of,
The sting glows, the sting grows.
Not concocting, awaits for implosions;
Silent cages to tear violently,
Towing her fated paths into the abyss,

[Hata Bildir]
