Daddy, daddy, why are people oh so very cold
Why can't I have what they have, a teddy bear to hold
Something I can fall asleep on, somewhere i can stay
Some place where the roof above keeps us from skies so grey
Daddy, why can't we be one of those who have a home
Why were we the ones to walk the empty streets alone
Daddy, why won't anybody let us find a place
It is getting cold, I hate the look upon your face
Daddy, please don't fall upon the icy, frozen ground
Daddy, one day we will find a place, so safe and sound
Daddy, please don't die here, please, we'll find a place to stay
Daddy... please don't leave me here, just please don't die away.
Daddy, let me sit there as you know you can't be saved
Next to you as we both rest inside our lonely graves
Let us dream of somewhere warm and somewhere oh so sweet
Daddy, daddy, tell me.. why was everyone so mean?
about a dying homeless girl.
I didn't cry. What does that tell you about myself?
Damn! *Cries in emo corner*
Omg that is so sad. Kinda reminds me of a story a teacher read aloud once, I was maybe 8 or 9 at the time. I think it was called Matchstick Girl or something. She was pretty much homeless, the youngest in her family and out in the streets selling matchsticks in the winter but no one bought them. She finally curled up in a doorway and froze to death. It was really, really sad until I raised my hand and was like " . . . why didn't she just make a fire?" xD
BAHAHA that just made my day... XD Thank you And wow, that's absolutely hilarious xD
The whole class went silent . . . finally the teacher was like ". . . that's not the point of the story! Who else has a question?" xD
that is absolutely amazing.. XD
I was like excuse me for using my brain xD
Well that pinkbubblesss bitch told me to fuck myself and then deleted her account, but she'll be back I'm sure -_-
A powerful piece, I enjoyed it.
this is so sad...beautifully written. but i think the ending kinda bothers me. i think it would be better if she didn't ask that final question before they died, but otherwise it's really beautiful.
The last line is supposed to be what her thoughts would be after she died. thank you though
Oh my gosh! This was so sad and so beautiful! I'm literaly crying my eyes out! It was wonderful!
wow! this is a very very very emotional piece xD
i cried! very powerful poetry! true talent!
I just want to post this around the world so that people will do something, this touched my heart
i like iitXD
