Has anyone heard of the two girls in New Zealand who murdered one of the girl's
mothers in 1954, or seen the movie Heavenly Creatures, was based on the girls'
frienship? I highly recommended seeing it and maybe doing some research on the
story, because in my opinion it's very tragic. Anyways, this a poem that one of the
girls, naemd Pauline, wrote. It describes her friendship with Juliet and the world
and religion they created. I don't know why but I love it; I find it very moving.
So, I'm gonna copy and paste it here, okay? Perfect!
The Ones That I Worship
By Pauline Parker
There are living among two dutiful daughters,
Of a man who possesses two beautiful daughters,
The most glorious beings in creation
They'd be the pride and joy of any nation.
You cannot know nor yet try to guess
The sweet soothingness of their carress
The outstanding genius of this pair,
Is understood by a few, they are so rare.
Compared with these two every man is a fool
The world is most honoured that they should deign to rule
And above us these goddesses reign on high.
I worship the power of these lovely two
With that adoring love known to so few
'Tis indeed a miracle, one must feel
That two such heavenly creatures are real,
Both sets of eyes, though different far, hold many mysteries strange,
Impassively they watch the race of man decay and change
Hatred burning bright in the brown eyes with enemies for fuel,
Icy scorn glitters in the grey eyes, contemptuous and cruel
Why are men such fools they will not realize
The wisdom that is hidden behind those strange eyes,
And these wonderful people are you and I.
