she is

A poem written about a young lady I knew years ago who was living on her own and going through many ups and downs.

she is

she is
a shooting star rider
end of the world
sole survivor
she rolls up
rolls down
rolls in
rolls out
she wants to laugh
wants to cry
wants to run
wants to hide
she is
feeling a little low
feeling as if
she has no one
and nowhere to go
too much
to absorb
each hour
each door
she is
fighting
to build a new home
even as someone
tries to tear it down
right now
once again
she is
overwhelmed
by every sight
every sound
by the stars in the sky
the dust on the ground
life picks her up
knocks her back down
she is
at times
merely a spectator
thinking that life
is passing her by
the curtain of naiveté
ripped aside
crawling
laboring
struggling
to survive
finding out
she is
still alive
can still love
and there will come a time
when she opens her eyes
sees the morning light
and realizes
everything
is going to be all right
