The Glass House She Built
She built a house around herself,
A house of clear glass.
It began to rain,
The sound so deafening she thought it would break her house.
Then a beautiful rainbow formed.
Forming clear glass into multi-colored glass.
It was just an illusion.
The illusion fooled her,
Until a boy,
Not much older than herself wondered,
“What would happen if I threw stones at the pretty glass?”
He threw the stones
And the glass began to crack.
The girl began to cry,
But he never noticed.
Until, the house she built for herself shattered.
She stood there crying.
Tears of blood dripping down her face.
She cried, “How could you! How could you!”
He stood there emotionless with a blank face.
And she stood there battered.
