She Will

From her lips fall words
of great importance
But all they want to see
is the beauty of her eyes
or the way her hair falls
softly on her cheek.

Her thoughts race
with great imagination
churning wonderful ideas
But all they want to do
is tell her who to be
pick up the make-up
And wear the pretty dress.

Her hands play the instrument
pleasing to all ears
Yet all they want her to do
is sit so quietly
And nod in agreement.

She will shout her words
trembling with excitement
She will share her thoughts
Her passion, her ideas
with everyone she meets
She will play her soulful music
vibrating through the air
to trample on her dreams.

Are we still so entranced by the outside beauty, that we ignore the passion of the words, the soul of the music, the imagination that lies within? Pick up most magazines and you will see. Things are better for girls of today, but progress needs to continue.

I’m just a small town girl with a big imagination and love for color! My art reflects the challenges me and my family have faced and met and came out stronger than ever!
