Once upon a time, there was a girl who was tall, dark, and lanky
She struggled to be liked...to fit in, alas, she succeeded only barely
With low self esteem; appalled, she asked, "What's wrong with me?!"
She came, she smiled, she talked, yet nobody seemed to see.
A diamond in the rough, she thought of herself
Sadly nobody has noticed that she ever existed
Personality she vowed to develop, read every book in the shelf
Determined to change for the better, she endured and persisted
As years passed by, this lanky girl grew in wisdom
Now confident of herself, insecurities and shyness she has overcome
God's gifts she hones, kindness glows and compassion glistens
She comes, she smiles, and she talks, now everybody listens.
