Say Something

Say something

to the girl who is standing

right in front of you

12 years is enough time due

Say something

to the girl who is risking

the unknown to talk to you

looking hopeful and confused

Say something

to the girl who is fatherless

in the absence of you

having positive male figures but here she has come to

Say something

to the girl who has grown

looking just like you

there should be some sort of breakthrough

Say something

to the girl who you left

didn’t quite occur to you

that she would have questions too

Say something

to the girl who looks defeated

you’d rather her walk away from you

instead of a conversation to ensue

Say something

to the girl who is riding away

I honestly can’t believe you

shouldn’t be shocked after all you put us through
