Mask Girl

Hi! My name is Lauren

Please take time to share

I have Trisomy 8 Mosaic

And people really stare

I think that they really don’t care

I want to be in school each day

But I feel other people don’t feel that way

I hear them whisper

I hear what they say

I feel them staring at me all day!

Every time I try to make friends

They make me feel unimportant

I really want someone to love me

HOW I AM…no questions asked!

I’m tired of wearing a mask

It’s a hard task
