A Poem for the Soul

Photo by Will Langenberg on Unsplash

She was a beautiful soul

Born in the country of Mexico

She was always sad

She had no home

She slept outside

She slept alone

In a city so old

No friends around

No family

No home

She cried every night

Outside in the cold

The weather was cruel

Strangers were worse

She wanted better

Then the pain of this curse

She ran across the border

Calling San Diego her home

She didn't know anyone

Where she would go?

There was more freedom

Then she had ever hoped

So she lived under a bridge

For a year and half

She never looked sad

She never looked back
