She loved the color lavender
Wore it every day to school
She didnít care at all you see
Cause she wasnít very cool.

She wrote poetry in a book
Sighing as each line was done
Her mother begged her to go outside
To meet some kids and have a little fun

Her words spoke of her sadness
Of feeling out of place
As the ink dried on the page
So did the tears upon her face

One day she was just no where
No one spoke of her again
But I think of her late at night
When I pick up my poetís pen.

This is very touching, Sharon.  The title really made me think, before and after I read the poem.  
I also love the parallel drawn between ink and tears in the third stanza.  
The colour Lavender in this poem I thought was symbolic, correct me if I'm wrong, of pride in being different.  She wore lavender (was different) and didn't care that she wasn't very cool.  The title really weaves into this symbolism nicely...
Wonderful job.

A most remarkable poem.  I agree with Allan on the symbolism.

Strange, though, that while she is gone, she still remains, if only in thought.

This is amazing.  The ending, particularly, struck me hard.  It seems to me that there is this child, that loves to write - but eventually, just dissapears because no one else could relate to her love for writing?  As if the woman still lives, but she only visits the memory of her inner child (the child that once was) when she's alone - and writing for herself, once again.

Don't know!  LOL     Maybe I read too deep, but I just have to say that I really liked this one Sharon.  It definitely left an impact.

You are one to be admired! I really enjoyed this poem by you....it was simply great. Sometimes I feel like that little girl....cept i'm a boy...erm....yea you know what I mean.....great one here!

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.
