March 2012

On her shirt was
the word ‘peace’
all sparkly and pink
and ‘smile’ was written
on her hand
in purple ink

On her diary
in glittery sequins
was the word ‘dream’
but how can she
what these words mean

How can she
believe in peace
when her hatred
will never cease
and her amount of lies
only increase

How can she
give a real smile
When she bullys
a minute a mile
How can that make you happy
even for a little while

How can she
have a dream
If she is
nothing but mean
and how, if she
kills with gossip,
how could she dream

She doesn’t know what those words mean
