Thief

At times this thief comes in
and only takes a little bit,
at other times it takes too much.
A thief like no other.
Sometimes coming to steal
just a little piece here and there,
waiting years to come back for more.
This thief is insidious
sometimes it takes everything.
Victims are left in wheelchairs
lacking the basic ability to walk.
Sometimes it pilfers a dancer's
dream, a sports hero's talent.
It is a thief that never robs
in the same way or at the same time.
It often comes and goes undetected
playing a clever game of hide and seek.
It is sometimes a blaring trumpet
and sometimes a muted horn.
How it chooses its victims
is always a mystery,
one that has yet to be solved.
It tends to target young adults,
those who seem to have bright futures.
It doesn't consider husbands, children,
sisters, brothers, mothers or fathers.
It steals in like a wayward lion
and devours its prey over time.
