    She stands alone amongst the crowd.
    Her hair and clothes the same as everyone else’s so that she won’t stand out.
    She expresses her individuality when she and her friends dress the same,
    Sharing her friend’s thoughts and feelings, this child has no name.
    She is lost within herself, searching desperately for her place.
    This young girl and her friends share but one dream, and so she has no face.
    She found some friends, but lost herself; in that she cannot be proud.
    Constantly searching for someone, but finding no one there, she is lost amongst the crowd.

    wow.........a child perspective but often an adult struggle
    and for some children a lifetime struggle
    loved the concept!
