Like a Tumbleweed

Posted on Jan 5, 2013


Like a tumbleweed
she blows on by
No-one sees her
or hears her cry
She just drifts
from place to place
This lost girl
fallen from grace

Once, she could
hold her head high
Her ambitions
rose to the sky
Then one day
she was set for a fall
Persuaded to break
the rules

Now she has
no-one to confide
All those she loved
in shadows they hide
So one day she
packed up and went
From town to town
moving again and again

Hoping one day she’ll
settle down
Someone will hold
her, in them she’ll drown
She’ll learn to
trust and also to love
Until then she’ll drift
and life rebuff
