Outside Looking InA Poem by imagination101
A young girl wanting to fit in with her peers
She stands on the outside looking in.
Often times a whispered prayer escapes her lips, wishing to...
Go to parties
She's poor in wealth by comparison
to the rich, but abundant in love.
Hand me down clothes is
what she wears.
While they wear designer clothes.
She settles walking or riding the
bus to school.
They cruise around in sports cars.
They hover over her with smirks on
Mouths open ready to spew out cruel words.
Swelling tide of woe washes
over her, dampens her soul
like dew dampens the earth.
Exasperation burns inside her,
heart overflows with shame.
She doesn't understand why they
can't see the good in her.
She may not be rich with money,
but she's rich at heart.
Always ready to be a friend,
but she stands on the outside looking in.
