Why Little Jane Can't Go To School

She sits quietly by her window each and everyday  

She watches the big, yellow bus pass her house and she begins to pray

She carries on throughout the day feeing joy and feeling pain,  

She longs to gaze upon a caring face and share a smile maybe an embrace

She dears to dream of the things she wants to pursue 

But in her countless failed attempts and fiery malevolence she wonders what to do

If only she could show them, if only they could hear 

Jane would break her bubble of fear and show them she's here

Although, sadly for little Jane; she's too delicate for this harsh and bitter earth.  

They'd outcast her and taunt her of the things she isn't worth

Because to the eyes of the ordinary Jane would be a freak 

They'd rip her soul to shreds and throw her to the curb before she'd even speak

For in the eyes of people like you and I, Jane is our angel from the sky 

She's a reminder with golden wings that perches in our hearts until the day we die

She'll be known for her eternal skin battle and enclosed life that she suffered through, but 
wished to rule 

But this is the true and wicked reason why little Jane can't go to school.

    Ana , your poem tore at my heartstrings. It is a shame how this world acts towards others that are not perfect according to them. Love, Carol

    You wrote of a soul who is so assured of heaven's home, that she could suffer this fate in earthly life. God bless Moses
