Little Mary Lou- A Poem

Little Mary Lou was born to the sound of screaming
She grew up warm and loved
and then one day, it all changed
Families were broken, tears were shed
and Little Mary Lou fell through the cracks.

Others laughed and played, kept screaming, kept crying
“Can I come out?” asked Little Mary Lou
“No Mary Lou, we don’t like you.”
And so Little Mary Lou stayed beneath the cracks.

Others went out, made friends, learned and grew.
“Can I come out?” asked Little Mary Lou
“No Mary Lou, we don’t have time for you.”
And so Mary Lou slept beneath the cracks.

Others developed and changed, felt new emotions, saw new sights
“Can I come out?” asked Little Mary Lou
“No Mary Lou, we’re too busy for you.”
And so Little Mary Lou lived beneath the cracks.

Others made choices, decisions, plans.
“Can I come out?” asked Little Mary Lou
“No Mary Lou, we don’t have room for you.”
And so Little Mary Lou was forgotten beneath the cracks

Others aged and felt satisfied with their lives.
“Can I come out?” asked Little Mary Lou
“No Mary Lou, we’re too tired for you.”
And so Little Mary Lou died beneath the cracks
