A Lost Girl
A little girl plays in the trees
She swings and tries to climb every branch she sees
Lost in the jungle with no mission but home
The safest land all that she knows
She doesn't feel at place it's loud at night
The animals come out to play to lurk and feed
She finds shelter as the animals eat on the weak
As the sun arises she thinks of her mother
Who gave her advice: don't trust no other.
The little girl creeps through the jungle
Passing every sadness a pack of animals
Who turn on each other with madness?
She misses home where there was family in her ear
Do this do that but be aware when you go out there
Her dad's protection if animals ever come near
It will be its fur he will skin then they will know fear.
She feels so different
In this jungle but she has no choice to walk among it
This jungle is the little girl's reminder
To leave the jungle behind her
All she knows is when she makes it home
The urban city will no longer be her biggest concern
