Donna – Keep On

DONNA

Donna died at age 16 in 1976. ┬áThere’s a huge collection of poetry she wrote before she died. ┬áThis is one.

KEEP ON

A lonely girl

sits in her room –

late at night;

by herself,

silently smoking,

and thinking.

Thinking.

She listens to the night time sounds, as her legs curl together for warmth.

She is lonely.

Oh –

so lonely.

For she misses her loved one.

And she keeps on…

thinking.
