So beautiful and so innocent
Shining and smiling with so much hope!!
From no where darkness creeps in and like a hungry lion devours the totality of her being
Takes away the innocence , joy and confidence
She is left with nothing but pain and anguish
Bitterness and fear becomes her companion
In a twinkling of an eye her world is crashed
What will become of her?
Who will believe her story without judging and making a mockery of her?
Will life ever be the same?
Does time heal such wounds???? Don’t think so!!
This insanity is getting out of hand
