Something different and outside the box; a poem about one of the greatest sex symbols in the world...only imagine Miss Monroe writing and reciting the poem.

"Marilyn Monroe"

By Christian Taylor 


On the outside, 

Marilyn Monroe is what they see, 

I see, 

Little Norma Jean.


On the outside,

They see a dumb blonde with no talent,

I see,

Little Norma Jean.


All I want,

Is to be a great actress.

All I want,

Is to be seen more than my beauty.


All I want,

Is to be loved.

All I want,

Is a family.


You want,

Seven Year Itch,

I want,

Bus Stop.


Confidence I need,

Freightened to disappoint,

Guidance I look,

Solace with the Actors Studio.


Scared little girl I am,

Memories of yesterday,

So painful,

Sleep so fleeting.


Something's gotta give,

A misfit I feel, 

Loved by the public, 

Love I don't feel.

You said it, Christian! She very much seemed to be someone that wanted love more than fame!

Definitely. She worked hard for what she got, but yet I think a family was her ultimate goal.

Great poem. I really like the way you treated this subject. I think it portrays Monroe's insecurities perfectly.

Thank you. I wanted to capture the mindset that she had and hopefully convey her thoughts if she were writing this poem.
