    *An oldie but goodie*

    She's so high that she can hear heaven
    But she knows that heaven can't hear her
    The angels don’t love this soulless child
    Lost
    Forgotten
    Helpless child
    Left to fend for herself
    Amongst the evil things that man can do
    To break a heart
    To kill a soul
    To make a smile shed a tear
    nothing but the crack pipe of salvation
    to see her through the tough times
    the rush that covers the pain , and tears and lonely tomorrow’s
    concealed within a hazy fog
    in her mind
    all the world is a stage
    and she is the main headliner
    No more happy days
    That makes her heart sing
    no more splendid moments
    That can take her breath away
    Nothing but heavy tears
    Filled with the sorrows of the world
    Mothers weep for her
    Fathers bang their fists against the harden earth
    Brothers hold the pain in
    And shed silent tears of longing ..inward
    Sisters stare through her soul with the third eye of forgiveness
    She's so high that she can hear heaven
    But she knows that heaven can't hear her

    Wow

    This piece was absolutely beautiful in its depth and language. There is tangible feeling in this piece that invites the reader into the world of this child. This reminds me so much of a similar piece I wrote called "Stairway To Heaven". Lovely, yet tragic read.
