I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality. ~H.A. Overstreet


Miss Congeniality
With perfect nails and hair
The girls all want to dress like her
The boys all stop and Stare

Kind, sweet, and reliable
Always a hand to lend
Everyone looks up to her
She's every-body's friend

She was one of my best friends
When the in-crowd caught her eye
I wonder what I ever did
To get on her bad side.

No chance of being popular
Since my "Friend" and I parted
But I've met up with others
Of the friends that she's discarded.

You've befriended the angel
But have you even tried
To get to know the angel
Who's a mere Devil inside?

Thank you for writing this. It's written perfectly, so please dont change a thing. I hate the message, not because it was chose, but because it's true. But i love the way you spoke the truth without being concieted about it. Does that make sence? Hope so. I hope i didn't confuse you with saying i hate the message. What i mean by that is that i hate that this happens, but i know what you mean. There is nothing wrong with this peom, and honestly im pretty upset it didn't make it into a mag. :(
