Child of the Night

Child of the night in secret's place,
crouching down
to conceal her face.

Trying to deal
with the pain deep within.
Her growing body
puts mind in a spin.

Adolescent’s turmoil,
the pressure of peers…
her energy drained
by the flow of tears.

Unaware of the presence
she'll find deep inside…
The light of her spirit
revealed in due time.
