What Happened To The Girl?

By: Denishea Young

What happened to the girl?

What happened to the silent one?

She was just here.

So full of life,

She used to smile 

Singing her greetings for all to hear.

Dancing with joy as she listened to your story.

 

What happened to the girl?

What happened that she became silent?

A day passed by no greeting reached their ears.

No sound passed her lips, nothing for the world to hear.

Her soul a mystery

her eyes shaded 

no clues to solve.

 

What happened to the girl?

What happened to the silent one?

At first questions of what’s wrong

A smile… "I’m fine. How are you?"

Deflect. Evade. Nothing to see here.

Fakeness, spread far and wide.

After a day or two no one sees.

Did they even really care?

 

What happened to the girl?

What happened to the silent one?

So quiet she became no one asked why.

A new continence they said, shrugged and walked away.

No joy to be found. 

No more fake happiness to display.

 

What happened to the girl?

What happened to the silent one?

She disappeared, they said.

No one noticed when.

One day she was there and next she faded away.

Never to be seen, heard alive again.

 

What happened to the girl?

What happened to the silent one?

She was sad, her note said.

Yet no one really cared.

She was tired, her note said.

Yet no one saw it.

She couldn’t pretend anymore, her note said.

So with a tired smile and a final sigh

She jumped and finally felt what it was like to fly.

What happened to the girl?

What happened to the silent one?
