She was stunningly striking,
standing out not just because
of her height
or her race
but because of who she was.

She was daringly different,
at times a little gothic
at times purely princess
but always genuine.

Out of the group
I thought she would do the most
(not because of potential
but because of purpose)
and that humanity would be healed
by her life.

I guess I just thought more people
would have the opportunity
to know her.

She was scarcely seventeen
