Favorite Quote:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


Trickling down as raindrops of red
Dripping painlessly from cold fingers
Gathering as a puddle of fire
Around the pale statue

Dancing heart beats end for applause
But the finale only meets an icy silence
Eyes staring lifeless ahead
Searching to find a new life

Small child as she is
Born into all the wrong life
Never able to play with her friends
Forced to work her limp body

Stomach empty just filled with her pain
Heart never learned the meaning of love
Unable to read or write a word
Living in her world of nothing

Gone too soon from a life she hated
Knowing of nothing else
Saving her no one knew how
Escaping she left without goodbye
