Poor Child

October 21, 2008
By Leah Landesman, Hillsdale, NJ

Poor child,
such a bad start in life
such a childhood, filled with grief
Beautiful face
you will rise above it all.

Poor girl,
so consumed in emptiness
so determined, but so far to go
Sparkling personality
you will rise above it all.

Poor starlet,
they all try to destroy you
Hollywood tries to humiliate you
Unquestionable talent
you will rise above it all.

Poor princess,
cruel things they write
envious people yearn for your failure
Good reputation
you will rise above it all.

Poor joke,
they say you will listen to no one
they say you have hit rock bottom
Still time
you will rise above it all.
