Definitions

Girl(n): a young or relatively young woman

I am young,

comparatively

My eyes are not yet wrinkled at the edges

My bones are not yet weary

I stand up straight,

deliberately

 

Willful(adj): showing a stubborn intention to do as one wants

I stand firm,

tenaciously

My mind has not yet grown used to accepting

My heart has not yet been tamed

I stare back when looked at,

daringly

 

Ambitious(adj): having a strong determination to succeed

I look ahead,

zealously

My ears have not yet paid mind to condemnation

My legs haven not yet grown tired

I climb ever-higher,

purposefully

 

Hopeful(adj): feeling optimism about a future event

I dream often,

positively

My thoughts have not yet strayed from sanguinity

My hopes have not yet been tainted

I continue in my reverie,

happily

 

Slow(adj): not prompt to understand or learn

I am a slow learner,

unhurried

My mind has yet to learn

to be

tired

complacent

weary

tamed

I have yet to learn

I hope I never do.
