Who is she with lyrical dreams
and fantasies that mean nothing?
Why is she nothing worth caring for?
She is crippled, broken, hopeless today –
she stopped hoping
a while ago but can’t help wondering
when she remembers and regrets
the chances she couldn’t take
desperately wishing she did –
the stars in her eyes are dimmer
than those in her polluted skies –
in the stained mirror she wonders who she sees
before looking away –
what is she worth if she means nothing
What is she worth
in a world that won’t remember who she is?
What is she worth?
