A girl who gives it all, who does not want in return. Is the girl who cries for help but doesn't ask at all.

She played Roulette on her life.

She pinned her hopes

She took her chances

She failed. She bounced back up again

She who gives all, gets nothing in return

She who knew it wouldn't work, gave it a shot anyway

She who is broken, carried on smiling

She who had first thought about everyone, did not one thought on herself

She who had not one who heard her tears, had not one who sat beside her, not anyone that would guide her

She who took the bullet, did not rise again.

They who did not notice yet before. Had noticed her again

All but too little too late

She who was invisible, lay her cold hand upon their shoulders and held them as they prayed.
