Not all that is gold glitters; not all those who wander are lost.
-J.R.R. Tolkien

She started off a girl untamed,

a girl unnamed. 

The world passed her by. 

She soared too high for them to comprehend.

They wouldn't learn to bend their ways, 

and it drove her mad, it drove her sad, the way their eyes had gone numb.

She would not succumb,

and the world passed her by. 


The world passed her by.

Life is like a chocolate covered chilly....

Some succeed because they're destined to;
Most succeed because they're determined too

The use of repetition makes this poem really alluring but I love the message too...Easy to relate to.
