She Stands Tall

by Jasmine Holley

She was just a little girl with big wants and dreams.
But had no one to encourage her on how to make them come true. Her mother loved her but couldn't help so it seems.
Her friends thought because she smiled her life was an easy road, but little do they know;she also had to face the cold.
She still stand tall...
She had no father to protect her from the little boys and on Christmas there were no toys...
Imagining waking up not knowing what you were going to eat.
But she was wise, strong and couldn't be beat!
There were times people threw things and called her names and everywhere she went she saw the same things.
Frighten by the street walkers that once before abused her
She still stand tall...
Soon she fell in love, felt that there was nothing above.
He held her hand at times she couldn't see that white dove.
He opened a part of her that was hidden within her past.
She then gave him her trust thinking it would last.
Before you knew it, street life was the answer to his death.
She cried and cried and even wanted to loose her breath.
Yet she still stand tall...
And till this day her life is being imitated
Till this day her love one was never duplicated
Till this day she STAND TALL not knowing life could be so complicated..

God bless you Jasmine. God keep you and direct you. Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts I have for you. Not one of them is evil; they are ALL good to you hope and an ESTABLISHED and productive end" (paraphased just a bit for emphasis - smile).

Keep writing Jasmine and continue dear, to STAND TALL!
