i think joanne is one of the few that will leave this place.
A New Role Model
Joanne is new to the ward. I like her.
I am not supposed to like or dislike, but I do.
Albert is dear, Debbie is, well, Debbie,
Johnny is an adorable menace, Marlene
Is meek, each is dear in their own way,
There is not one I cannot love for
Who they are. I am not supposed to love,
Not here. Joanne appears to be a street kid,
I haven't heard her diagnosis. I am
Guessing she was unmanageable at home,
Used drugs more than she should, maybe
Ran away one too many times, maybe
She got tired of the abuse and fought back.
She reminds me of me, had my life
Been tougher. I could use a little toughing.
I may learn something from Joanne.
