the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 5
The girl who cannot smile

The girl who cannot smile

No one cares who I am

No one bothers anymore

No one wants to know

Criticism like before


I broke down and cried

Why had this happened

No one loves me now

My soul spirit dampened


Leave not of this world

But who bothers to know

Take nothing when you go

Cruelty that’s how


I climbed through the stairs

Hoping to reach the sky

My face covered with shame

They yelled I cannot fly


They said I was not pretty

Not even in the heart

They called me a gullible girl

Those words like hurting darts


I tried to cry out and call

I tried every means to scream

But they tore apart my life

They broke my greatest dream


It turned into a nightmare

That started to begin a haunt

How painful was their punch

Hurtful were their taunt


Then I had it with them

I lay my hands down

The girl that never could smile

On her face a dreadful frown




a description of the resistance and reluctance to show joy
