A Haiku-style Poem by Magdalena, 12

ONE LIFE
one little girl
against the world of many
just one little girl, that's all

She is one of them
of that old, old religion
what a strange creature

one of the Catholics
but not just any Catholic
but a Byzantine
daughter of a priest
who works at the hospital
and at the police

mom is a teacher
when she's at home or away
because we homeschool

barely twelve years old
but what a life to behold
people say, "oh my"

one little girl
and her family so dear
one family, here
