Nobody Loved Her - Poem by Bonnie Shipman

Nobody loved her
And she loved nobody back
Nobody took her by the hand
And led her to the mountain top
Nobody said, “Jump,
And I will catch you.”
So she jumped,
And nobody did.
Somebody should have loved her
Somebody should have cared
Maybe if somebody had reached out,
nobody would have been lost
And she would still be here

Somebody loved her
And she loved everybody back
Somebody took her by the hand
And led her to the mountaintop
Somebody said, “Fall,
And I will catch you.”
And when she fell,
Somebody did.
