Little Girl Lost

Little Girl lost was she
when life upended
and all that made her secure
was twisted out of her grasp.

Her home had been a trailer
when life upended
and that meager metal box
was exchanged for brick and mortar.

Her interdependence had been in community
when life upended
and that freedom to move about safely
was exchanged for isolated miles and fast cars.

Little girl lost was she
when life upended
and the search for love and acceptance
was begun and took her around the world and back.

Her home is now again under a tin roof
and security is being re-established
and love and acceptance is being restored
back to the way she knew as a Little Girl.

Her interdependence rests again within community
and identity is being re-established
and wonder and discovery is bursting anew
back to way she knew as a Little Girl.
