Young Girl


She lives like the Sun gallops through the day
She laughs like the Ocean's steady sway
Her tears fall like hellfire upon her breasts
She dreams she died a thousand deaths
She hurts like the Earth's crust being cracked
She celebrates like Ancient Rome being sacked
She clings to her children like Guatanomo Bay
And her prayers are carried by Enola Gay
She is the plant phase of evolution
Her love embraces like industrial pollution
Her fear engulfs like M.A.D.
Have mercy on God, if ever she be sad
She carries life like grain
And as divinity she bares all pain
This is the Daughter we have raised
She's as certain as these final days
