Little Girl Love - Poem by Debbie Steyn

dear little girl
you have only love
you face the worlds claws
without a glove

you smile upon all
like an angel of the light
deceiving hatred
with your sweet sight

then one day comes
a day worse than all
little girl you are hurt
and you take a fall

Now you stand up
the little ripped away
a woman whose revenge
makes every person fear and pray

give me back
my little girl side
so i can stop reigning in terror
to stand up with love and pride
