~One thing she has~

Others think she's not serious
Her desires are quite spurious
Others think she's but a slacker
But she's an avid mark tracker
Others do not understand her
Just because she loves to ponder
Others care solely for high marks
She knows those now are just plain larks
Others care less for honest brains
So that for her it ever rains
They care even less for true brawn
Decent schooling, morals - long gone
Further one day may she succeed
Others' advice she need cautiously heed
For there is one thing that she has
Nothing to do with razzmatazz
Though many deem her as quite odd
Dear Reader, she has faith in God.
