She’s A Stray

Wandering and lost

A little girl without a friend

Alone, to find her own way

 

Through a grimy hall

And she’s spinning, spinning

Taking a new path, she’s a stray

 

And off she runs

Her heart pounding fast

A thrill in her blood, to a new day

 

Now in the streets

Hair in ribbons, she wanders

Hungry, so hungry, ’cause she’s a stray

 

Hunting for scraps

Sickly, so thin, and lonely

Rummaging in the trash, the street’s buffet

 

Dogs come, human once were

Chase her off, barking

She runs, but she won’t be like them: she’s a stray

 

Now winter comes

And it’s cold, bone-chilling cold

Shivering in a corner, too weak to play

 

A smile behind blue lips

A sigh of breath at last escaping

She hasn’t given in, ’cause she’s a stray
