Nobody Cared

Nobody Cared
By Nomar Knight

She wept for what was lost
Her shoulders bounced
Chin tucked to her chest
Eyes welded with tears

She thought nobody cared

It didn't matter how she felt
People bending her will
Breaking the need for comfort
Until hope evaporated

She thought nobody cared

Ridicule ruled her waking hours
Sadness brought by misdirection
Loneliness smothered thinning breath
Past decisions kept her prisoner

She thought nobody cared

Years of being pushed and pulled
Slapped and kicked
Spat upon and neglected
Brought her to her knees

She thought nobody cared

Her allies turned against her
Hoarse whispers drowned out
By stomping tantrums
Cast out of grace

She thought nobody cared

Until a Knight heard her pleas
Soothed aching soul
Valued her friendship
Healed her for a breath

Alas someone cared

Shackled from power
Hidden from view
Her savior banished forever
Separated by ignorance

Again nobody cared

The princess cried
For hope shouldn't die
Yet freedom's song was silenced
Keeping her in darkness

When will somebody care
