Hey guys, this is much neater than before. I've got a lot yet to learn in poetry, so forgive any errors and imperfections-they are simply, my own. As for the poem...

I hope everyone can get the message and can point out my mistakes. Thanks everyone. (It dosen't exactly look how it dose on my Microsoft Word...so it might look little funky in some places.)
Perfect face, sapphire blue eyes, a little porcelain frame,
this doll isn’t bough cheap.
She’s done with poor packaging and
dealt with super-glue repairs.
No room on this box label to say “handle with care.”

Don’t you know porcelain’s fine like glass?

She’s even comes with a metallic-stand,
watch her stand all on her own.
Broken hands, missing legs, cracked face,
this doll is bought cheap.
She even comes with a metallic-stand,
watch her fall over all on her own.
Sequenced dress and synthetic hair,
ruby-red lips with sculpted cheeks.

Don’t you know porcelain’s fine like glass?

An original creation
no refunds, she’s one of a kind.
Break her you buy her;
but she knows accidents are bound to happen.
She’s been decorated with paint and lace,
with the finest silk and an angel’s face.
Wrapped in newspaper, tucked away for years
in a brown paper-box.
He made room for plastic-Barbie,
with thicker skin and slimmer hips.
Wrapped in black bags, tucked away for a day,
in a tin trash can.

Don’t you know porcelain’s fine like glass?

With cracked skin, and straw-berry faded lips,
this treasure is thrown away too easily.
She is decorated no more,
used and broken, this angel face once forgotten.
With value so little and beauty once so rare,
she’s got a gentle touch, even when she’s bare.
She’s always been replaced
by little knowledge and a plastic-Barbie face.
Excusive with chips, broken legs, and a tattered dress.
This girl’s been through more than you could even guess.

Don’t you know porcelain’s fine like glass?

Longing for a shattered dream,
A pretty face she is no more.
Next to garbage and debris,
This porcelain girl wishes to be free.
No more bubble-wrap for her self-protection
This girl was once the splitting image of perfection.
Careless hands drop without reason,
She just wants someone to hold on.

Don’t you know…
Don’t you know…
Porcelain is finer than any glass?
