The only thing she had on her shallow, average mind.
With her shallow mind, she talked about people
And said things no one wanted to hear.
She heard secrets from others
As she walked casually down the street.
Her town was small and quiet
But was filled with lots of news and gossip
Quite a rebel, she was
Although she had beauty and smarts
She never found any use for her town
But she was keen enough to listen to what others had to say
As she sipped her latte in the luxurious cafe.
Seeing them bicker
Hearing them snicker
Made her begin to wonder
As all the gossip slowly entered her ears
They remained in her mind
All those secrets
Just had to be told out loud
But she had to keep them to herself.
The gossip that she wrote
On all her sticky notes
Were stuck on her office wall.
Some days, she was quiet
And kept to herself
But she wanted to spread the gossip
To everyone in town.
They told her "ignorance is bliss"
But she didn't believe them.
The small talk she always heard
Spread quickly like wildfire.
As she listened carefully, a small smile came across her face.
Gossip was something
That she urgently wanted to share.
She was like a moth, attracted to the flame
But not afraid of the fire
Rumors were all her mind wanted.
But, soon, word got out about the girl
Who was spreading all those rumors
The girl who said bad things about others
When their backs were turned.
Everyone was angry and disappointed with her.
Who knew that all this gossip
Would cause such catastrophe?
They didn't want to hear
Any more foolish things
From the local gossip girl.
The girl realized how stupid and self-centered she was acting.
She knew it was all a big mistake.
All that bad-mouthing and lying
Had made everyone feel bad
And she felt bad herself.
She had to get rid of all these lies
And tell the whole truth.
So, she sent an e-mail to her friends, saying
"I'm very sorry I spread so much rumors and gossip. I don't feel proud for that."
Now, she no longer spreads bad gossip.
Instead, she spreads news about good things
And she believes in hopes, dreams, and wishes.
Everyone accepted her the way she was.
The gossip girl had now come clean.
