silly little girl

silly little girl
nose forever stuck in books
a seemingly permanent smudge of ink
etched on the apple of her cheek.

despite the resident bookworm status
she was aware of far more important things.


for her parents, her friends, and her belief.
time and time again she endured the hatefulness
of bigots believing her to be nothing better
than dirt.

an abomination to a select few
a hero to some
but the world to everyone else.
