Girl with the genius IQ isn’t smart enough to ever know what’s good for her.
Girl with the range of talents isn’t skilled enough to get her act together.
Girl with the broken heart isn’t strong enough to keep her tears away.
Girl with the pretty face isn’t enthralled enough to face the day.
Girl with the good luck doesn’t know that’s not all it must be.
Girl with the unique vision doesn’t care to share usefully.
Girl with the fearless and gracious front,
still squanders when her plate is full.
Girl who seems too good,
to be true is destined,
to be just lost,

    Sounds like dwindling needs some kindling. Well written poem about a sad subject.

    Dwindling probably due to the classic melancholic lack of self confidence.

    Wow. This is powerful. I love the way the shape of the verses narrows to reflect the dwindling described.

say something to me.
