Girl Child

I need you,
Like the earth needs the sun.
Do not turn your back on me.
‘Cause I’m tender and the world isn’t so merciful.
Don’t leave me in the dark,
I’m scared of ghouls.
They’re lurking in the dark corners, waiting for you to leave,
They’d rip my insides and turn it inside out.
They rid me of essence, and
The world would mock me with scorn.
So please don’t leave me, cause I’m only but a girl child.
Love me, ’cause like the earth needs sun,
I need you.
I need to feel loved, protected and watered tenderly, like flower,
I’ll blossom and make your world beautiful.
‘Cause I’m only but… a girl child.
