Idol Refrain

by James Zealy

She stood on the stage
Overcome by the moment
Her little girl voice cracked
As tears poured like an April rain

We in the audience watched
Crying drops of empathy
For this beautiful sad woman child
Struggling to finish her anthem of pain

She bled tears of sadness
She bled tears of sorrow
She bled tears of joy
She bled tears of amazement

For there was
No mom to share her shoes
No mom to watch her grow
No mom to talk to
No mom to sew her tattered heart

At the end she stood
Emotions scattered amid the spotlights
Her voice quivered a passionate refrain
Thanking us for our patience

It was as if for a moment
We were her family
She could share her anguish
And know we would understand


Author's Note: I saw Kellie Pickler this past Friday. She broke down in tears on stage singing her song "I wonder".
