I am lost

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 13:00

I am the one who wanders

in the galaxies 

that do their best 

to guide her.


I am the girl who 

reached out 

at the exact moment

when her country 

turned its back on her.


I am the girl 

who sings day and night,

because she knows 

that she might not 

ever get to sing 

as an adult.


I am the girl

who reads and draws,

the ink and graphite 

stains her hands like 

lifeblood for her veins.


I am the girl 

who knows and laughs,

who tries her best to please,

who wants so badly 

to be considered.


I am the girl

who wanders,

but is not lost.
