The Rag Doll's Sonnet - Poem by Armmina Liberté Maclang

The Rag Doll hides behind a smile
Upon her fabricated face.
She keeps that smile all the while,
But she thinks she is a disgrace.

She stays motionless in her one corner,
Keeping away from every other toy.
Hidden within her is a silent mourner,
Yet her face shows a smile of joy.

She is different among all play-things.
She is outdated as well as old.
Her life is a tragic song that sings
About events too dismal to behold.

The Rag Doll's sonnet is her silent cry.
The Rag Doll's smile is her biggest lie.
