Uriah Hamilton

A Little Girl Lost

Abandoned to sadistic streets,
A school room of sullen tears,
A little girl lost beneath
A blanket of rejection and fears
Moves slowly through
The lonely night;
The effects of drugs
Are wearing off…

And dawn has no promise
Of sunlight and pleasant songs.

    it's such a pleasure to read your work again. This is very touching, as most of your work is. It grabs the emotions, shakes them up, and allows us to feel...
    Excellent, as usual.
    Warmest regards,

    Very good writing...and true; also, sad. 'Little One, Little Voice' is about what we see happening with children today; 'Inside Her Little World'..thank you...10 for this and probably for others of yours... (Report) Reply

    It's so hard to imagine that so many young and older women are living this reality. I know several women in this situation right now, here in Calgary, Alberta. A sad but lovely piece. Thankyou-----Melvina (Report) Reply

    Uriah, This is so sad and inevitable - the downward spiral of neglect goes on down and down and down. Lonely words, sensitively portrayed. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

    This is a part of society people try to ignore and forget. It's wonderful to know there are writers out there who still see them. Brava! (Report) Reply

    you've captured quite well the hopelessness and fear you feel 'when the drugs wear off'. there is nothing more terrifying. great poem.
