Though muddy streets and murky waterI found myself – my mothers daughter.All that’s left is a shell of me. All that’s left is what you see.In filthy rags and dirty skin I found a killer deep within.Through muddy streets and murky water All that’s left , is my mothers daughter.©all … Continue Reading Orphan by D.D. #StarfishClub #BraveWords #Poetry #PoetryHub #Coffeeandachat @coffeeandachat1 #WritingCommunity #PoetryCommunity

Thunder Flashing, Crashing The storm rolls on Water rushing past As the rain beats down I shut my eyes tight To keep out the light And wait for the next Loud boom.
