The Harshness

By Taryn Pearce, TIWP Student

She had a dreamer’s heart
and a sparkle in her eyes
that no one could forget.

Her soul was sweet
and the chaos
made her beautiful.

But then
the harshness of the world
got to her.
Drenching her
in its sick rain,
filled with hatred.

It extinguished the flame
that once burned so bright
within her.
