Struggle

She was struggling all alone,

none could hear the silent groan.

Bruises, too deep….

scathed by some creep.

 

A solitary tear

trickled down the cheek,

as the onlookers

gave her a grotty peek.

 

Dejected and deprived of

love and care,

the situation was squicky

and full of despair.

 

Not a single noble soul

dared to make it right,

most turned their faces

after seeing her plight.

 

Waiting for a miracle

she looked up the sky,

hoping our Father in Heaven

will listen to her sigh.

 

With no desires left

where humanity stood bereft,

she decided to leave

with none to grieve.
