The Middle Child

by Jenie G., Age 15 , Grade 10, Thomas Jefferson High School, Council Bluffs, IOWA USA

The middle child is said to be

The unnoticed one.

As unnoticed as they may be

They still have hope

And dreams

And wishes.

They more than anyone fight for

A better life.

A life where they become

The center of attention.

A life where they’re not


A life where their accomplishments

Are noticed.

They are the middle child,

A smiling wonder

Who takes on the world

Even if the world is

Against them.

Maybe that middle child is

The first child

Or maybe they’re

The last child.

Maybe they’re just a child

Who wants love.

Maybe they’re just a child

Unnoticed but still

Trying to make a difference.

Maybe they are the

Brave child.
