A little girl

Sits in the snow

.

You think

She is smiling

Laughing

As the snow falls

.

And go about your day

.

Can't you hear

Her screaming?

Can't you see

She is alone?

.

Can't you see

How much pain

She is in?

.

She wonders why

You do nothing

.

Are you seeing an illusion?

.

Do her screams

Sound like music?

Does the falling glass

Look like snow?

.

Her world is so small

She feels stuck

As if frozen in place

And never aging
