Caroline - Poem by Annie Janine

She fights her own battle
alone

Caroline

she walks to her day care
alone

Caroline

with those gray blue eyes
windows into her soul

Caroline

and returns to the homeless shelter
alone

Caroline

alone in the big city
only 4 years old

but already at war
with the world
that just keeps putting her down

Caroline

Nobody knows
why she is so skinny

why she walks alone
why her cherubic little face is streaked with dirt

Caroline

god bless her
Caroline

    This is superb Annie. A powerful statement about poverty and neglect that touches the reader largely because of its direct, uncompromising delivery. God bless her indeed. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
