Shrouded - Poem by Jessica Paige Davies
They've all left me.
My friends and family,
All gone with happy faces.
What do you expect me to say with honesty?
You call me a genius,
Nay that's all a lie.
It's called hard work,
Determination and devotion.
So please don't laugh and smirk,
I don't want to wear this mask any longer.
I'm tired of being the good girl,
But I don't want to disappoint.
Maybe I'm greedy like a clams pearl,
Shinning like a star, yet deceiving.
I don't want to be saved,
Yet I want to be free.
I'm a selfish bird that's caged,
My feathers clipped and trimmed.
Maybe I'm strange,
Maybe I'm bizarre.
Like a red button in loose change,
A robin shrouded in darkness.
