She Never Knew...

Life grabbed a hold of her

Her sadness was her poison

It swallowed her whole

And fragmented her soul

She never even knew her power

Had never known her strength

She couldn't reach higher than the pain

For there was no escape

She was betrayed by life

Strapped to her worthlessness

Like a shadow on her back

There is never ending fear

She desperately tried not to drown

As she searched for answers

The ones she never found

For the poison fed her pain

And choked the very breath she tried to breathe

There was emptiness in her eyes

Her vision distorted by her own mind

Life had grabbed a hold of her

And she never even knew why....
