Little Girl Lost

How did she forget who she was made to be

The secret DNA of a person somehow lost in all the clutter of living

Hidden by personas added to appease

Additions that never quite achieve

Only diluting the core of her being

Wiping away each layer leaves her feeling


So bare

A little girl lost

Not knowing which way leads home

    A song popped into my head, reading this – J.J. Heller’s Who Will Love Me For Me.
