One Girl's Pain

Written by: Christina Larmon

They turn, look, and say
Shun her
Shun her for she is not perfect
Sun her for she is intelligent
And her intelligence threatens us
Remind her that she is small and we are big
Make her know her place and love it
For she is weak and we are strong
Use her for she is powerless against us
And powerless she shall remain
Forever will be the story of one girl's pain.
