nobody's child

Nobody's Child 



off hands

of the master.

see how she falls,

with porcelain




all through

the plaster;

painted smile

on lips alabaster.

broken doll-baby

tumbling faster...

spiraling out of control

towards certain disaster...

            "i'M NOBODY'S CHILD ~ I'm Nobody's Child ~ like a Ramblin' Rose I'm growin' wild ! It happens HONEY and often we are helpless to help ! Sadly it mainly seems to happen to vulnerable Girls caught up in the temptation and seeming endless abuse of life. Loved the Poem but hated its real life reality ! ~ HUGS ~ BRIAN

                Superbly written lament of the grievous mishandling of what I'm sure came into this world a perfect China doll. On a side note, I was a broken doll this past Halloween. Enjoyed you, Cat.

                    You poem is brilliant and I can feel the pain of the doll. The person who went through this I hope that they are ok.I guess nothing will change what happened but the person can try to forget. Hugs Micalina
