The Beasts in a Girl

There was a girl

who hid under her covers

 

Who waited and sat

and cried for her mother

 

There was a girl

with a hidden belief

 

Who looked in the clouds

and saw the beasts

 

There was a girl

who saw no other

 

Who laughed past her tears

and hid for her lover

 

There was a girl

who only the wind could hold

 

Who saw the hail

and loved the cold

 

There was a girl

who touched the beast

 

Who saw the sadness

and rose to her feet

 

There was a girl

who left her home

 

Who touched the clouds

and saw the dome

 

There is now a girl

who hides away

 

Who lets them in

and waits for the day

 

There is now a girl

who has the world at her feet

 

Who abides the storms

and knows how to retreat

 

There is now a girl

who plays no games

 

Who knows the struggle

and knows the pains

 

There is now a girl

who rides the beasts

 

Who cries out her fears 

and wallows in her grief
