"who, what, where and why"

who is this person before me?
bringing only what she knows,
the sum of life's experiences.
stunted, unable to grow.

what has happened to her?
wearing the scars of the past.
once was young and innocent.
nothing ever lasts.

where is she at this moment?
lost deep in thought.
once ripe for the picking,
is now consumed by rot.

why did this happen?
can't explain any of it.
coming apart down the middle,
yet hasn't completely split.

"Who, What, Where And Why"
 
Who is this person before me?
Bringing only what she knows,
the sum of  life's experiences.
Stunted, unable to grow.
 
What has happened to her?
Wearing the scars of the past.
Once was young and innocent.
Nothing ever lasts.
 
Where is she at this moment?
Lost deep in thought.
Once ripe for the picking,
Is now consumed by rot.
 
Why did this happen?
Can't explain any of it.
Coming apart down the middle,
yet hasn't completely split.
