Poem – The Girl I was Before. 

I gasped

Looked out

At a world I couldn’t touch

Kneeled down

And reached

For a hand I couldn’t clutch

I sold

My soul

As I tried hard to fit in

Got lost


A big world so full of sin

I blinked

In shame

At the things I had done wrong



Was a yearning to belong

I died


Every day a little more


To be

The young girl I was before
