Special

Little girl
With a pink heart pencil box
Among her upperclassmen
For a class
She has skipped grades for
 .
They glare at her
Envious of her
Not talking to her
Just resentful
That she
Is in
Their class
 .
She
Certainly
Is smart enough
She’s ready
She turns in her homework
On time
Unlike them
 .
But still
Despite her charm
Her cuteness
She is snubbed
For being special
In a place
Where special
Is supposed to be
Celebrated
