She hides behind the fence posts

Where no one sees her there

Cloaked by wooden slats and nails

She stays hidden from the glare

Of hatred thrown about her

Lives taken, for mere display

She no longer wants to live

In a land that prays this way

Someday she’ll find the courage

To walk away from all this hate

But for now, she stays behind the fence

For now, she has to wait
