Life on Hold

A little girl of 7
Nieve and laughing
Plotting what to do next
Oblivious to the cruel world around her
A girl of 12
Starting middle school
Talking about "When I grow up..."
Making plans to be a vet
Coloring pictures of rainbows and sunsets
A lady of 15
Dreams shattered with the growing bubble
Brain surgery needed to make it quit
Everything put on hold
All her dreams now untold
And for what?
A loveless god!?

This is powerful, i like the progression of time. May the power of the universe bring luck to your sister. (I'm non-religious, so i wish the universe to people, instead of a religious symbol.)

This is a beautiful poem. It's simplistic, but it really punches you in the gut when you read it.


I'm very sorry for your sister. I wish her strength to make it through.

She is in my prayers -- I promise. I'd pray for everyone on this Earth if I could :( But I can't, not enough time. I think it is better to take action rather than hope and pray for the best, but sometimes, hoping and praying is the most you can do.

Wonderful poem, truthful.
