The Ordeal Of Youth - Poem by Kevin Campbell

Facing the ordeal of youth
From the cradle to the grave
With no experience of the dream
She enters a new age

jelousy amongst her rivals
A testiment to their age
The shepherd crys for his loss
But the tears are on her face

fine words carefully chosen
Honed and sharpened to a point
Lost souls full of emotion
Young hearts filled with regret

Some one needs to save her
But Im not sure its me
If shes happy in her missery
Theres no need to set her free
