The Scared Scarecrow Poem by Paula Glynn

The Scared Scarecrow

An innocent little girl
Being a scared Scarecrow
Hiding in her small bedroom
Wishing the clock would stop
Closing her eyes and wishing she didn't have
To get out of bed and face the world.

An innocent little girl
Being a scared Scarecrow
Keeping her head down low
Hoping not to be noticed
Hoping others cannot see her fears
That are doomed to last years and years.

An innocent little girl
Being a scared Scarecrow
Painfully shy and awkward
Going through teenage years alone
Always wishing she was home
Instead of the packed classroom.

A now attractive self-made young woman
Having made it through the wilderness
Having been shy and quiet
Yet working hard to face people
And survive in the big bad world
Having once been an innocent little girl.

A now daring young woman that she is
Her soul made of yellow straw
Like the Scarecrow in 'The Wizard Of Oz'
Unable to be a fearless lion
Wishing for bravery and strength
Wanting to bounce down that yellow brick road,

But people love her deeply
Knowing she is much stronger
For facing all her unsettling fears
Her yellow straw holding her together
In spite of troubles never to fall apart
Because her vulnerabilities shall depart.
