Where’s the little girl gone?

The one with the sparkle in her eyes?

So rambunctious

Ambitious

Unstoppable in her plight

To feed a ravenous appetite

A craving for written words

Brushstrokes

Human hands molding clay

Melodic sounds

Music soothes her soul

Imagination…her high

Where’s the little girl gone?

Outgrown?

Forgotten?

Does she even remember me?

Does she care?

She had so much to say

Where is the rebel with a cause?

I miss her

Image

She’s here, she never left

She was pushed to the corner

For another day

The days grew longer

Real life her Master

Until the girl finally stood

Clapped her hands

Demanded attention

She still has a lot to say

And the time is now

She speaks

No longer a girl

The girl has gone, grown

But her imagination lives on

The woman is here

To stay

The girl was right

Never too old to play
