Silent and Hopeless

Location

She's been through so much, 
But she can't tell you a single word. 
Slowly, a silent tear runs 
Down her soft, pale cheek. 

She cannot talk, but remembers everything- 
The hospital, her parents, the screaming- 
Now confined to a wheelchair, 
She cannot do anything herself. 

Surgery gone wrong. 
Nerves paralyzed. 
She sits there crying. 
An 18 year old girl wishing for a better life. 

Hoping for a new day. 
Dreading this nightmare called life. 
Wishing for her past, 
But slowly giving up.
