Little Miss Wounded

here comes little miss wounded
with stories to tell
of her many misfortunes
and how her life
is so much different
than she thought it would be

little miss wounded –
scarred and bruised –
sings of her past
and how infused
it was
with pain and doubt
and sitting out
on the edge of the world
with everyone else
safe inside

and how she only realised
these things
in retrospect
on her quest
to find the cause
of her ever failing
self esteem
body image
confidence

little miss wounded
doesn’t care
for your problems
your fears
or any tales
you share,
for only hers
are sad
are lonely
are filled with grief
only hers
deserve
to be
heard
