I Am


I am a girl that’s sad
I wonder if people understand me.
I hear people talking about me
I hear my people dying.

I want a better life
I am a girl that’s sad

I pretend to be happy
I feel like someone is out to kill me
I touch the skies of heaven
I worry about my life
I am a girl that’s sad

I understand why my mom left me
I say I’ll meet my mom
I dream about meeting my mom
I try to act like someone I’m not
I hope I can meet my mom
I am a girl that’s sad.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
