"But I don't want to go among mad people,"Alice remarked."Oh,you can't help that,"said the Cat."We are all mad here.I'm mad.Your mad.""How do you know I'm mad?"said Alice."You must be,"said the Cat,"or you wouldn't have come here." Alice in Wonderland

She was treated like a dog in that house.
Her father used her in many experiments.
His last one labeled her as a failure.
With the proof on her shoulders,
She wandered many years with her scars.
Once a dog with a roof over her head,
She is now a dog lost in the world.
Hiding herself, healing herself.
But the scars are still there.
She is separate from the world,
Because she is different.
A failure.
Labeled by her own father.
She is separate.

The author's comments:
My English teacher showed us a picture of a girl with TV for her head. She was carrying a stuffed animal in one hand and a blanket in the other and the background had an eerie look to it. She told us to write a poem on the girl's background and this poem is the result.
