She Will Be
She won’t tell you where she’s going.
Hundred times burned, now shy.
She’ll just keep achieving
hoping to become legitimate enough
to be impervious to name-calling,
belittling, and cruel trivialization.
She’ll love deeply,
and fear abandonment.
She’ll be that person who changes ethics.
Being a contradiction of ambition and thoughtfulness.
She will imitate FDR and Churchill
Then resurrect the content of their words.
Failing to put personal ties in perspective,
she’ll shy away from conflict
until she internalizes normalcy.
She’ll be kind and forgiving,
sharp and quiet,
she’ll live a contradiction, not a lie.
She’ll develop a moral code to live by.
She won’t hide behind being vague or humor
