Starting over (poem)

mechanic

Here are the usual links to catch up on the rest of the series first, if you need them

DESTINATION EARTH

WELCOME TO EARTH

HUNTED

ANIMALS

TAKEN FOR A RIDE

OVERKILL

BETRAYED


Lila was thrown to the ground

Grazing her skin, but they only shouted

About how it pretended to bleed like them

When it was inhuman and needed

To be put down before it called the others

She had no choice but to use her power

Lila ran, only stopping when

She couldn’t run any more

Closing her eyes, she could see

Jays face, the betrayal and hatred

She understood the betrayal

Not the hate, not yet

That night she found a bench

And tried to sleep

She couldn’t understand why

Her stomach ached so badly

And water leaked from her eyes

Leaving her feel empty inside

In the morning Lila looked for work

Knowing she needed money to survive

And found a garage

They seemed more concerned

About proving she could fix a car

Than how she was an illegal alien

Having fixed spaceships on her planet

A car was much simpler to figure out

She was introduced to two others

Who claimed to be illegal aliens too

But they smelled human to Lila

She was shown where to hide during police raids
