The Rag Doll

By Genny, age 17, Malta

It was nice while it lasted
But now what will she do?
She was helpless and needy
She was a just person like me and you.

Her whole life had turned
From sunshine to rain
From happiness never-ending
To everlasting pain.

Her tears told stories
Of what once used to be
One day she was a princess
Her dream now too far away to see.

But now let me tell you
The real story of this girl
'Cuz I know you're all wondering
Who's this sweet shining pearl?

No one special, not important,
Well, that's what she thought
She thought she could only be happy
By the clothes she bought.

She had a great personality
The complete package and more
But the problem was jealousy
She was everyone's envy.

She had hard times in life
People bringing her down
She would cry and whine
In her life never a ray of sunshine.

She didn't wish for this
This was not her fault
It was the greedy people
That backstabbing would never halt.

She just couldn't see
She was better than them all
And instead of standing up for herself
She would always stumble and fall.

Well, to cut the story short
One cold February night
As she least expected it
It was her chance to shine so bright!

It was like a twist of faith
She rose up, she didn't fall
She found the love of her life that night
She finally showed them all.

She showed them she was capable
She could do what she wanted
And no one had the right
To take her for granted!

I'm not saying people changed
Their attitudes were still the same
But for her they didn't matter now
She was now playing a different game!

She gained her self-confidence back
A thing only he helped her with
She had finally found this someone
Who stayed with her, and her life lit!

The point of this story
Is to show you now
That we are all capable
In some way, somehow.

One must never give up
One must hold their head high
'Cuz one day love will come to you
You must say "I am special"

You only have to try! :)
