Glitter and hair tyes cover the ground.
Where a perfect cheerleader could once be found.
All that it took was one fatal mistake.
Following her dreams, she sought after academics.
Now she's laughed at, as if she carries an epidemic.
Weeks before, everyone knew her name.
She sits alone now, with no one to blame.
But herself.
Pursuing her dreams was very quite brave.
Someday they'll all regret their wrongs against her, just as they visit her grave.

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

This poem is really choppy. The rhymes aren't that disruptive, but the change between one to the other is so sudden that it's freaky.

Dream as if you'll live forever, love like there is no tomorrow, dance like there is no one watching.

Fantastic. It's sad but true (for lack of a better word). You truly are a fantastic writer!
