by Girlinshadows (Theheroiccouplet)
The girl had lost everything
Her mother and father
Her sister and brother
She moved from one abandoned building
to the other
And slept on rocks and stones
Whenever she could
She went outside
Only to feel the rain on her skin
She knew she didn’t have much time ahead of her
So she tried to be as alive as she could
for the remainder of her days
She saw a shooting star; She closed her eyes
And wished real hard to be a bird
So she could fly away from that godforsaken place
And as she lay that night on the cold concrete
she took a quick look around;
She worried she wouldn’t wake up the next day.
She woke up to the sound of a bomb
And tried to convince herself
That it was only the sound of her heartbeat.
The night sky tucked her back to bed and kissed her goodnight.
She closed her eyes
And never opened them again.
She woke up the next day,
Only to realize her wish had come true
She was now a bird, flying through the colorful sky.
