Stars and Denim

Brand new chucks
Worn till they don't have soles
Till duck tape can't cover their holes
Never had a dollar till she got to college
Never had enough to eat
Never could get enough sleep
Door locked barricading herself in
Never gave her peace
Never felt safe enough to be

Always praying for morning,
Hiding from moonlight and its big bad wolf
Too young to be so angry

Tile floor never felt so cold
Shaking hands never felt so old
Suicde; she'd never be so bold
