Lakewood Elementary Student wins state poetry award
The following is her award-winning poem: In the beginning, the Girls
"The Flower Girls"
How many did see a thorn as a rose?
Is a problem that suddenly arose
In our small little garden in front of a shed The ones who withered listened to what they said.
Beware the Flower Girls, pretty and nice For on the inside is a cold block of ice.
They were dull, boring weeds
But bullying helped them grow
For on sorrow is what they feed.
Dried out from all their torture and tears You’re the one that almost nobody hears.
Walking alone through our garden one day Surprised to hear one of them say,
"I was a Flower Girl, a horrible weed
But now I’ve changed that nasty seed
Those words I said I’ll always regret
And the things that I did, I will never forget."
When a Flower Girl, one from the start
Opened up and had a change of heart
She showed us something, now everybody knows.
There’s no difference between a real girl and a rose, And after all that we have seen That beautiful bully is the cold hearted weed.
In the beginning, the Girls
