I Am Just a Ragdoll

I am just a ragdoll
Created to entertain,
Not pretty like the others,
But button-nosed and plain.
My legs are too weak to stand,
So I never learned to walk.
My mouth is just a bit of string,
So I never learned to talk.
Yet, I am invited to many tea parties
But cannot drink the tea.
A well concerted plan I think 
To have a laugh at me.
I go only where I am taken
Or go nowhere at all
And am subject to every whim and fancy,
Every beck and call.
But if I am not happy
At least there is no pain,
For I am just a ragdoll
Button-nosed and plain.

    My daughter just turned thirty and still has her rag doll. Funny how it still means so much but your story is true. Her rag doll never felt pain.

    I very much liked this one. It gets the imagination running and gives feeling to our complex hearts to such simplicity of words. Always, Laura

    one can read undertones with imagination of relationships, abuse and domination. then again it could just be a poem about a ragdoll, still makes you think, and that makes good literature.

    My rag doll died a long time ago, but I still think about her.
