A/N- Well this is just a short poem I wrote, from Mayella's point of view. It's supposed to be describing what he life might be like. Feedback is encouraged! Please let me know how I did...this is for school!

I Am Mayella Ewell
By: Marie (you're not getting my last name)
A short poem describing what I think of Mayella's life.

I am troubled and I am alone.
I wonder why I am beat and uncared for.
I hear my screams piercing through the house as he hits me.
I see myself neglected and so badly hurt.
I want to be loved and cared for.
I am troubled and I am alone.

I pretend that I have a friend.
I feel confused and hurt because I know it's not true.
I touch the injuries as I silently shed a tear.
I worry that someone will know the truth, and he'll hurt me even worse.
I cry at night by myself when I am sure no one can hear me.
I am troubled and I am alone.

I understand that he's a drunk.
I say he knows what he's doing.
I dream that someone will accept me.
I try to make my life seem normal.
I hope that one day my dreams will come true.
I am troubled and I am alone.

I am Mayella Ewell.

A/N - So, how was it ?

Oh, and for any of you reading my Twilight Fan Fic, I apologize for not updating. I have most of the chapter typed, but I need to check a few things in Eclipse, which is kind of hard since my book has been gone (being borrowed) since AUGUST 10! THREE DAYS AFTER IT CAME OUT! As you can tell, I'm not very happy. Anywhoo, I should be getting it back within the next two weeks, and you all will be getting maybe two or three chapters worth of writing!

ANYWAYS...please review and tell me how you like this poem! I have to turn it at school for a grade :( (Grr...I don't like school...)

Oh, and sorry for the long author's note!
