Who is Mariah?

Mariah is how she Mariah’s
She aspires to inspire
Tho’ she isn’t aware, I swear
It’s a wonderful Cross to bear

A delightful smile she has
The insightful glee of a child!
Sweet innocence of potential
To bloom against the earthly gloom

Such joy she brings - with annoyance
Incessant chatter about random matters
But bubbly as always, doubly the sun rays
I love her just the same, forever in her name

That’s just who Mariah is
