The Wallflower

March 17, 2008
By Mikayla Rasmuson, Park City, UT

SMALL AND DELICATE
IN A WORLD WHERE NO ONE CAN SEE HER
BEAUTIFUL
ALWAYS PASSED BY WITHOUT A SECOND GLANCE
HIDDEN IN SUCH A BIG WORLD
SHE DISSLIKES IT, THAT’S WHAT SHE THINKS
IN THE SAME PLACE HER WHOLE LIFE
HER FAMILY MOVES
A NEW WORLD

A NEW PLACE


A NEW LIFE
NO LONGER A WALLFLOWER
STILL SMALL
STILL DELICATE
BUT IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE DOES SEE HER
BEAUTIFUL
NEVER PASSED BY WITHOUT A BOYS GLANCE
STANDING OUT IN SUCH A BIG WORLD
SHE LIKES IT OR SO SHE THINKS
THE GRASS ISN’T ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE
SHE WANTS HER OLD LIFE BACK
SHE

WASN’T


PREGNANT
