Society's Trash (the non-agressive version)

Poetry By: cmccoy

Tags: True, Life

This is a not so agressive version of the first 'society's trash' that I wrote. A little less assumptive.

I re-worked this a little, tell me what you think;) thanks

She had long blond hair and big green eyes
She was beautiful, thin and tall.
I had always thought maybe she
Was too good to be standing on that wall.

We all knew her as the 'hooker on the corner.'
But still I wondered if she had a family.
I wondered what led her to this point in her life.
If I stared at her long enough, I think I could see a little of me.

Some people may hear about some hooker on the street
And some may not feel for her or think she can do better
Mabye some will assume she used drugs, lied and was a thief
But I feel she is a person and she'll be that forever.

Then one day I didn't see her on that wall.
My mind wondered into scenarios that may have happened.
I didn't know her, but I felt for her.
I just imagined that her family would be so saddened.

I knew when her body turned up, someone
would cry for her for she was someone's daughter.
I was sure that somewhere, someone
was looking for her, mabye even her father.

The detectives are probably overwhelmed-
They have a million suspects and a short time to close.
I wonder if they found her family?
Yeah, I bet she had one of those.
