"What if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection?" -Calvin & Hobbes


Bruises

On the faces

Hearts

Minds

Of women

Young girls

Mere children

Untied shoelaces

Dragging on the pavement

Sad days passed

More to come

Life to lose

Wars to wage

Dimes to pay

Wind in your hair

As you walk down the street

Cracked red tiles

On laundromat floors

Where you sleep

Young child

You sleep

Alone

Cold

Fighting for control

Over your life

Battling the man

The black cloaked man



Shhhhh, whisper now child



He's here.

It's sad to see young people falling into drug and alcohol abuse.
