A Doll

Her father left on long trips
Not knowing when he would return
The young girl kept quiet
Stubborn and a bit insecure
She found it hard to make friends
Seeing the new doll she was playing with
The other girls said come and play
They all played together until
The young girl was called into dinner
The other girls said they would
Love to take care of the doll
As she saw her doll was sleeping
She let them play with her doll
After dinner, the young girl returned
To fetch her doll
But
No doll was there
Lost
Stolen
The young girl wept
Hurt
Beyond repair
She felt betrayed
No longer accepted
By the other girls
She found herself
Feeling unwanted, alone

Years passed
The young girl was now a woman
She grew to think of herself sadly
Until
Someone special came along
To saw so much beauty
Within her, it shown through
She was beautiful
For all to see
No longer saddened
Or in disarray
The young woman
Went to share
With others
The beauty within
Shining an amazing light
No matter the past
The light shines brightly
In beauty and splendor
