Care Giver.

On the outside she seems happy, Contented with life at last. No one sees the girl behind The cleverly composed mask. Each day, for her, is a struggle I see the demons haunt her eyes. She likes to act and play the fool Because it is her disguise. She s had sixteen short years, And each offers more than the last. She s become old before her time Because of her gloomy past. She never got a real childhood; She was always looking after another, Whether it be her granddad, sister, Cousin or brother. She wishes each day that she Could live her life like others her age, But her life is her life, And she s got to accept that fate.
