I Cried Today
Mayuna

I stood in my bathroom and I cried...
 1
 
 
I cried for the friendless little girl that I can still hear whimper and cry at night out of loneliness
 2
 
 
I cried for the fifteen year old girl that woke up one morning to find her father gone, a shadow of a stranger in his place and her mother uncaring about what happened to either of her children
 3
 
 
I cried for the sixteen year old girl that laid awake at night a knife securely stuffed underneath her pillow in case the stranger decided to attack her
 4
 
 
I cried for the seventeen year old girl that begged her uncaring mother to let her come back home after she was thrown out and ended up becoming homeless
 5
 
 
I cried for the eighteen year old girl that became a mother to soon
 6
 
 
I cried for all of her dreams that were broken and all her aspirations that never had a chance to be full filled
 7
 
 
I looked in the mirror and all that was left was me

for the friendless little girl that...
Cried until i
looked in the mirror and saw
all that was left
is me.
