The poem is below.



I don't know what I would do 
if you started talking with me ,
I wouldn't understand ''Why,'' you would want too
People always had looked down on me for no reason 
but maybe because I am beautiful 
and that makes them hate me!
whatever the reason is I really never cared.
But when you had told me you ''Love me,''  
that's when I started to cry
Oh, please don't ask me why
I knew that I love life but my words stayed unspoken 
I knew that if anybody would ever say something nice 
I would have to ask ''why,'' what is it they want 
why are they acting nice 
Oh, how this makes me cry 
because I can read their lying eyes
while they look at me closely my tears begain to fall 
and then they would walk away making me feel smale
I would sob for weeks with wounder in my mind
I never knew what I would do in a world that is confused
they love to beat ones spirit down
just to see the weak bleed
that's when a nice looking man walked over to me
saying why do you weep
you are a beautiful queen 
that is why so many are being so mean 
stand up on your feet 
because this world won't wait for you 
just get up and breathe 
set your self free 
from the ones that hurt you 
thats when he kiss my hands and walked away
with a big  smile on his face
I could feel happy tears made water at my feet 
my eyes was no longer full and I seen the world a beautiful 
place for me to be with a king who truly loves me.
