• Ellen

    By Julia Sweigart

    She walks with the rest
    The same, yet different.
    She stands out alone
    Smaller, but so much bigger.
    She lags behind while
    Trying harder than anyone to keep up.
    She holds a special place in my heart as in the
    Hearts of so many others
    Irreplaceable, she is so perfect
    In her own unique way.
    Some may talk about her or
    Laugh or point at her.
    *Does it care? Does she care?
    Once they know her,
    She becomes a precious jewel in
    Their lives.
    Amidst change and hardship
    She remains the same,
    Dependable and strong.
