Snap Shot - Poem by Marrissia Holliday

A snap shot of a lonely girl living in this crazy world not
knowing what the next day holds for her.

A snap shot of an old rich man behind his desk he has his
whole life in a book that everybody's read
He knows the path he'll take for the rest of his life.

A snap shot of a poor boy digging in the garbage can
trying to find his next meal.

A snap shot of a runway girl, she's being used by
every man in sight and she knows that it aint right.

A snap shot of a woman wishing she could get away,
knowing that tonight will be like the last, she hides behind
her mask. The yelling and screaming the hate in his beating.
all she ever wanted was to be wanted.

Another snap shot of the lonely girl sitting on a park bench
the tears rolling down her face she looks across
the street and and she knows whats going down.

A snap shot of a dark night sky but nobody hears her cry,
the cars drive by..
She hides behind her mask hiding the marks of her past,
I dont like that snap shot...
