I say to you, hopeless sorrow is
Yet all she feels is grief and
The dept of her heart has lost its
Though, the way to it is that of
The dream of her first night is
Her most precious asset is shattered.
Youthful pride becomes soured.
All about her seems to be broken.
Fretful and peevish she becomes
The treasure behind her lily has stains.
Clothed with friends, her watvhword is
Hurt and brutalized,yet full of
The stigma of the unknown dwells within
Emotional questions of psychosis with no
She becomes depressed, feeding her
And no one seems to understand her.
