Derelict Child

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”-Oscar Wilde

Derelict Child

by Carmen H Gray

I see past the “unloveable” parts

Of you

I see beauty that resides there

I see beyond the poisoned darts

I know you have a song to sing

To the world

To impart to others

Teach us what it means

To rise above

Take my hand

Let me walk with you

Toward unclouded love
