Woodland Girl; A Poem | prettylittlewriter

Recently, I've been going through my old stories, lyrics and poetry I have saved on my laptop from over the past few years. Most of which are from my teenage years. 

I came across this poem that I wrote back in 2010 when I was sixteen. I'd never been one for poetry, as I often found poems weren't long enough for the kind of stories I wanted to tell.

I thought I'd share it with you however, as I actually quite like this one, and I would love my readers feedback! So please, have a read and leave any comments you have!

A girl stood lonely in the wood,
tears streaming from her eyes.
She didn't know she'd cause a flood,
and destroy many lives.

She thought she’d make it,
but she’d thought wrong,
so she found a place to sit,
to sing the saddest song.

Night came thick and fast,
so she got to her feet,
whilst thinking of the past,
and the people she was unfortunate to meet.

'God, please help me,
save me from this pain,
I’d like a place where I can see,
and figure out my aim.'

She staggered home through the night,
where she found her Mother on the porch,
she put her arms around her tight,
and thought happy thoughts.
