lost girls


she closed her eyes 
the time had come
to go where 
her innocence
was taken.

but lost girls look for places to go
far away from reality.

she swallowed her secrets
never to tell
deadlocked in time
her story stays there
it remains
concealed and unopened
until it is freed. 

but lost girls look for places to go
far away from reality.

what is it
you've said
without saying it?
what is
your heart
telling me?

i'm a broken piano
in need of mending
this lost girl is weary 
and tired of pretending
all of my words
are heavy 
and so hard
to speak.

please come
sweet lost girl
and pour out
your story
come
and lament
your reality.

jesus is waiting
and listening.
he wants you
to come and
be free.

– michelle 

* written for all the lost girls who've no one to tell. 

he hears the cries of your heart.
and i hear them too.

you matter. 
your story matters. 

we're praying for you.
