Head Down, Little Girl


“Maybe all of these things
Make me who I am
And I am
Only looking up
When my heads down.”

Head down, little girl
Time to put away hope
Like the child’s toy it is
Always looking up
At the ground

You’re tired, little girl
Why have you not closed your eyes?
So weary of this world
And all their selfish lies
Sleep baby, sleep

You’re lonely, little girl
Hold loneliness like a lover
For he will never abandon you
Learn to crave his cool embrace
Lavender breath upon your face

You have been used, little girl
Too many times to count
Even hearts of gold die
Embrace the fall
Don’t dream to fly.
