People Watch Her

April 23, 2008
By Megan Lehman, Knoxville, IL

People watch her in the hallway, at her locker, in her car,
she nevers knows wneh they're watching.
She never knows where they are.
These people are always watching, waiting to be impressed.
And she knows it very well, she's got to be the best.
She works herslef day and night, she never gets a break.
She's got to impress the people watching, her reputation is at stake.
The pressure is starting to build up,the stress is now too big.
She's got to stop the people watching,
those staring little pigs.
She waits until the afternoon, and starts to make a plan.
She hides it from the people watching , they wouldn't understand.
She decides to run away and leave this place for good.
She'll go to a place where people don't stare, and leave her as they should.
She runs away and finds this place in a valley far away.
She hopes this is the perfect place,
a place where she can stay.
She decides to stay, and settle down and leave her past behind.
But instead she finds something scary, something she didn't want to find.
People started watching, every moment, every day.
Thats when the girl first realized,
she can never run away.
