I am a grown up, young woman.
Or, so my birthday tells me…
But i have the disobedient curiosity
that trade-marks a young child of three….
I have the wild drive, that indiscretion
of when it’s not safe to gallop on the edge,
I’m not sure why I feel so not grown up,
probably because at 10 years old, i took a pledge
I said i’d never grow up, not for anything..
not even if it were to make me a queen
i want to be a child forever & ever…
Oh, the classic never-land dream…
