Rumors whispered through the halls
By people with no good to say
She wonders why she must go to school
If she comes home and cries every day
She prays when she gets home from school
After she throws the backpack on the floor
God is the only true friend she has
Her friends call her a bore
The people tease her for the clothes
The bible tells her to wear
Modesty is one of her core values
Being teased for it is no fair
Why must others bring her down
For being a child of Christ?
They are the same, everyone is
But not all of them are nice
Strength comes from knowing that
What you believe is true
The sabbath she holds dear to her heart
Means more than the words they spew
So with a bible in one hand
She can walk through the hall
Knowing that strong girls like her survive
And the weaker ones will fall.
β€œWith their words, the godless destroy their friends, but knowledge will rescue the righteous.”
- Proverbs 11:9
