Laughter can be heard through the halls,

Silly children make their way to class

But Lucia is left behind. 

I see her sit in the furthest seat without a word.

How can I help her?

I know what she needs. 

The school won't give

She must learn on her own.

Billy pokes fun at her accent,

Susie says she's stupid

Not true.

I know Lucia isn't given a chance to learn

I want to help her

But I have no resources.

She is left behind because they don't care.

She doesn't speak English, but I do.

How can I help her?
