She Ran

Lucky Mud
Maggie McKinney


For so many of those girls out on the street, on their own and so very young.


She ran so far away

No one knew where

She came from

She left her family behind

With no intent to return

She left a mother

Who couldn't believe

The things that were happening

To her

She left a groping

Step-father behind

She left without a word


She ran as fast as she could

From the story

That she had to tell

She left her friends

Wondering why

She left all by herself

It's not a story

So unusual

It happens every day

All of these young girls

Feel so alone

That's why they run away

She landed out on the street

Picking up men

Along the way

They gave her

Something to eat

And sometimes

A place to stay


She is alone

Like she's always been

But she feels the choice

Is her own

She chooses who

She takes to her bed

Not the man

Who lives with her mom


She will never return

To the place

Where she was betrayed

Her mother

Never looked in her eyes

When she told her

She just turned away

Making her feel

Like it was her fault

Though she never

Said it that way


Her mother just couldn't

Face living alone

So she threw

Her daughter away

She may never believe

That love

Could be any other way

She believes

That love is a fight

You just have to push

Love away


She cries

Night after night

And lives in despair

Through the day

She lives Life on her own

She thinks it's better

That way


She ran so far away

No one knew where

She came from
