Blonde hair in pigtails
On the lawn doing cartwheels
Candyfloss and angel wings
She sits forlornly on the swings

Sucking on a lollypop
Slowly pulling down her top
Even at just age fourteen
She does the dirty and unclean

Coming from a broken home
Blonde hair pinned with a comb
Child abuse and bruised eyes
She sits alone in her room and cries

Dirty, violated and confused
She’s just so tired of being used
Takes a razor to her wrist
Now she no longer exists

Blood in her pigtails
Pink varnish on her nails
Prostitution and child abuse
Needle tracks and coke use

This poem seems to be about teens today.Alot of teens are going through this kind of thing.
I agree with Germain, something about this poem is a keeper. I think of a memoir I read dealing with the similar topic. Keep writing!

I don't know why, but I really like this poem.
