Treasure Island

Sophie Shaw


Abandoned


In a darkened room,
Sat a little girl, abandoned,
Her clothes torn,
Her hair knotted,
Her skin dry,
Her eyes watery,
Her teeth black,
Her nails broken,
Abandoned,
She stared at me,
I comforted her,
And told her 'everything will be okay'
I went to get help,
But nobody cared,
Except me,
I went to the shops to get some clothes,
But they didn't want to sell any to me,
I am known as 'the one who helped the tramp'
Nobody wanted to know me,
Nobody understood why I wanted to help,
People that are homeless, poor,
We are all a gift from God,
Accept people for who they are,
Not where they live, not what they wear, not by their looks,
But by their personality.

Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
