Little Girl Speaks…

When I was a little girl 
I had stars in my eyes and dreams in my heart
Now that I am a grown up 
I have longing in my eyes and always seeking comfort through my heart.

When I was a little girl 
I wanted to paint rainbows with my fingers and every breathe smelled heavenly
Now that I am a grown up
I have sweat on my plams and desperation in every breathe I take.

When I was a little girl 
I had wings to fly and a spring in every step I took 
Now that I am a grown up
I have little patience for butterflies and every step is a hurdle , a burden , a bitter truth.

When I was a little girl 
I believed in unicorns and danced just because I could 
Now that I am a grown up 
I am weary of every glance and fidget on every thought that passes through my mind .

When I was a little girl 
I was precious and protected and promised the entire world
Now that I am a grown up 
I wonder if my living is still worth it .

When I was a little girl all I wanted was a hand to hold and my mothers bright smile 
‎Now that I am a grown up all I wish is for a reason to smile and a shoulder to be at peace at the end of the day.
