(Contributed article by Josh Servais) She walks the streets cold 🥶 and alone ,
Her beauty is undeniable. Yet this complex young woman is as fragile as a precious ornament Ah yes , she’s is a woman to be mindful of .
A quiet gem 💎 unknown to societies stares by pass on the bus stops , No answer when she knocks. But this hidden gem deserves to be treasured , Not one of those we all forget .
Raised by a single parent , surrounded by three siblings , Hand to mouth was all she knew An on some days she could even remember the smell of the stew .
Her mother was no example with the day light brothel she ran , school became her safe haven , Just to avoid the touch of her mother’s John .
This jewel is one we laugh with yet at her back we are so hypocrite . We treat her like she is worthless and criticize her constant mess .
Starvation lurks at her door she can no longer avoid the inevitable anymore , The taste of the meth gives her courage to bear the stranger’s girth and bad breath .
Her eyes oh her eyes begs for attention from the authorities , To see at fourteen years old she needs saving from those monstrosities .
But the scras of her impoverished life have aged this and so she is discarded as a woman not fit to become a wife.
