Faith

A
Young
Girl’s life
Shattered into
A million pieces
Her innocence taken
Forcing her to grow up
Way faster than she should
Missing the small childhood joys
Every child has a given right to have
And now as she struggles to find all the
Many different small pieces of her broken life
Trying to repair the damage done, one piece at a time
She stands with her head up high, knowing she will be ok
Having undying faith in the strong love that surrounds her being
And the peace and happiness she knows she will find, one day at a time.

(smiles) Yay! Oh Tara, this is wonderful, sweet friend, I have been there too, believe me, and though I am saddened I never got to live a decent childhood memory, I am stronger than ever and will embrace the sun with the spirit of the boy in me so keep letting the spirit of the girl in you sing! (kiss on cheek) You have my innocent vote, dearest friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Tara, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Thank you all for stopping and reading. This has always been one of my favorite of mine.. I think because it is so personal.

Anyway.. thanks

Hi Tara,

Wonderful my Dear, I loved the presentation you have here and the climax of wisdom that seems to grow with every line, so enjoyed.
