I wish I were a glow worm, a glow worm's never glum. I mean, how could you be grumpy when the sun shines out your bum? ;]

on the edge
of the cliff
of popularity
i look down
its a far way down
standing there
on the brink of falling
what should i do?
i see my friends
or i thought they were my friends
having fun
ignoring me
on the other side

i slip
i am hanging there
off the cliff
by a finger
a single finger

she walks over,
my life long friend
and she stares
and i stare back
will she help me?
will she and her popular friends
rescue me?
protect me?
she looks sad
my heart sinks as
she turns and walks

I've learned that friendship can be a wonderful thing, but also a hurtful thing. You might have a friend one minute, but not the next...
my own experience inspired this poem by me, Talia
