young, determined, naive.
shy, yet eager to please.
little with a big heart
brave with all the scars to prove it,
because in her little mind she had nothing to loose.
Until her mind wasnt so little
and she was beginning to notice how afwul being 7 with no real friends was.
She was lonely
a talkative girl with so few words to say
she turned to books to find them.
she was certain that all she needed were those crisp pages and they would be enough
until they werent
and she was beginning to notice how weird people thought she was
She was 12
when she decided she needed a change,
a chance to express herself in a better way,
and it all started on the day she pretened to sleep in class.
She made them all laugh
She was wild like a fire,
but her smile burned brighter than any flame
her presence illuminated gloom
lighting up a room.
her upbeat tempo brought smiles to faces
people wanted her in different places
and she wanted to go
until she couldn't
the 8th grader couldnt handle "no"
and it crushed her soul
She was a breeze
a free spirit that did as she pleased,
that traveled with ease
across the seven seas of highschool.
until she realized it wasnt a breeze
and neither was being a teen with no vision or dream
She is under preasure
and her loved ones arent making it any better.
She needs to find a goal and do it now
its to early for her world to come crashing down
She is insecure
she is not who she wants to be
she wants to be more responsible with her
thoughts, body, mind, money, time.
She needs to know where to draw and cross the line.
She is alive,
awake, flowing with the speed of the times,
a more mature mind, than she had 4 years prior.
She has begun to glow in her own way
making every day a new way to count her blessings,
and as she continue to grow
she will glow, not just up but down on those who doubted her.
she will shroud them in the light of her accomplishments
and that light will continue to glow,
Until her dreams are reached,
And even after that.
