Sleep Walkin' - Poem by olivia helmes

a little girl is walking through the world awake but not aware
seeing drugs, rape, abuse but what should she care
things going on everyday she sees them but then she doesn't
she sees the faces but not the person
pain is the normal in the world that is certain
parents thinkin that they are doing better for their children by raping
them at 5 or 15
all of the children they just dream
they don't see what's being done
they see it but they don't read into to it
one day somewhere all the sleepwalkers are gonna see then believe for a better world
maybe just because of that little girl
