A little girl

There was a girl who was born

A girl who lived

But was always dead

A girl who had eyes

But never saw

A girl who was haunted

A girl who sinned

A girl who never deserved

The life she had

A girl who loved darkness

And was drawn to perversion

Even though she was only a child

A girl who destroyed herself

And all those around her

A girl who wasn’t old enough

To understand what she’d done

A little girl who was wretched

A little girl who was wrong

A little girl who was sad

A little girl who seemed normal

 

And I’ll tell you a secret

Here it is

 

That little girl

was me.
