The girl in yellow

July 23, 2009
People stay away from the girl in yellow
Her father passed out on the floor drunk again
Her mother packed her bags long ago
Two uncles and one aunt in prison
Little sister has a little baby
Brother stay away from the girl in yellow
Three visits from the police this week
The family car the homeless wouldn't take
Her grandparents roam the streets nude nightly
The girl in yellow has issues
Too bad none of them are hers
Now look deep down,
would you stay with the girl in yellow?
She gets all A's in school
She never gets into fights, she uses her wits
The rumors grow larger but she pays no mind
The girl proudly walks in a straight line
Kind to all she see, she smiles with honestly
Just because if her background
she doesn't think she should hide underground
The future looks good for the girl in yellow
If only no one would look down on the girl they should look up to
The girl in yellow.
