Orphan, orphan

child of the night

abandoned and alone

blind and deaf

does no one hear the child's cries

the child does not matter

orphaned and alone

not loved, unlovable

sad, miserable

feeling too much

knowing not enough

no one wants the orphan child

with her frightened eyes and wild look

no one loves the orphan child

who has known only rejection and pain

no closeness! no sharing!

panic signals

alarm bells

the orphan child runs and hides.
