his is totally a found poem. I got it from the UN website http://www.un.org/en/events/girlchild/. I always feel a little guilty for found poetry. However, I have had writer's block since a mean literary aggent person told me to go to school (pouty face). How's this for insight you ugly-shoe-wearing mean person! Yeah, I showed her. Thanks found poem!
