Little Bright Eyes

Her blackest face a picture waiting
A portrait
Of sadness
Her broadest smile a treat
A delight
Her age just a guess
A smaller issue
For her
Her future so unknown
A shameful day
Her father is just a memory
Of metal bars
Cold words
Her mother so depressed by alcohol and despair
She has lost a confidante
A family
And love
A tragedy
But still she smiles
In hope
Of a chance
Her courage so immeasurable
Her heroism beckons
Will one day save her people?
