Once upon a time
There was a little child, she was five
She was at school
Before the bell echoed
She was sitting on a little chair in silence
On a baby blue and white checkered dress
White socks and a black baby doll shoes
She was cute!
She locked her eyes on the window
To gaze for her mother’s shadow
That signals, “I’m here, my love!”
And she thought if not,
“I’ll go home by foot and that’s alright!”
And all the little children she doesn’t know
Except for their faces
Were under the arms of their mothers
And she was standing
Waiting, but even the shadow did not show
She started to walk
With only thoughts of her own
Walked calmly but thoughts were running
And not ever stopping
“Keep walking until you reach home.”
Fearless as she may appear
Because she doesn’t know fear!
How far could she walk alone with only thoughts
Of her own and fear is still unknown?
She has walked around the world!
