That One Day

December 22, 2009

Her life was like a river running downhill.

She dreaded waking up in the morning for school.

Lonely lunches,

friendless years,

heartless parents,

mocking students,

all a part of her life.

Then, there was that one day.

Running to her class,

avoiding tauting,

she dropped her folders.

Papers flew like feathers,

drifting down slowly.

Frantically, she began picking them up.

A hand appeared,

a hand that helped.

She looked up to see the smiling face of a boy,

a boy she had her eye on for years.

He smiled and said

"Let me help you with that."

That one day changed a life.

That one day brought love and happiness,

to a girl who had never felt it.

That one day changed a life.

Great beginning, although it sounds more fable-like and cliche at the end.

It's very steroetypical, sorry to say. Girl - friendless with nothing good going for her in life. Girl meets boy she's loved forever. Pretty common. But other than that, great poem, it really goes well. I liked it.
