8 (who?)
A mother and her daughter walk down a ghetto street.
Her daughter was her world,
She wouldn't let anything crush her little dream.
"Stay close to me dear, there's nothing to fear, beyond these fences there are golden fields."
She looks to her daughter, she looks to her light,
She would not let anything harm her,
She'd protect her with her life.
She watches as a car goes speeding by,
She wishes her daughter had a better life,
But she knew that her daughter will one day fly,
Fly into the open skies.
A man comes out from within the shadows of the alleyway,
He says "I'm sorry things must be this way,"
He pulls a gun, she feels stunned,
She protects her daughter, her world, her dream, the man only wanted their money but he took so much more,
There's an echoing call of a bullet,
Her world, it shatters,
Her daughter lays on the ground in a pool of crimson,
No more laughter.
The mother falls to her knees, she holds her dream,
"Stay close to me dear, there's nothing to fear, beyond these fences there are golden fields."
The pitter patter of her daughters heart goes silent and shes torn apart.
She sits in the silence, the tears begin to fall,
Beyond these fences, there is nothing at all...
A Poem/Story I made while my family and I were driving through a pretty rough part of town, I saw a woman and her child walking down a street with no side walks, and this came into my mind instantly, so, enjoy. <3

Well that was utterly depressing.
Beautifully written, though!
Oh my gosh. ;_; This is so brilliantly sad. I love it but at the same time it makes me cry.
