What Awaits

What Awaits beyond today

A little girl walks down the street worried about her first day of school

Her mom walks with her hand in hand

worried of girls with wealth and beauty

What awaits her daughter here

Again they walk hand in hand

but the girl is older now and the mother is worn

The girl with scars on her arms and weight in her hear goes to school

wishing for things she would never have

What awaits her here, a love, a friend, or even a kind soul

A mothers embrace, with tears on her face

as the letter arrives and her little girl prepares to go

hand in hand they go to the waiting car holding the girl's new future

on last embrace and a single questioin

What awaits beyond today
