To Me

To the girl

Who would walk down the halls lined with fire

Venture blind into the tall grasses

Where heaven knows what awaited her

Clasping nothing but a white whole heart

Eyes closed to everything but the path ahead

Don’t cry, don’t crumble, don’t fall

 

To the girl

Who put one foot forward

With eyes set at the top

And a smile challenging fate

Seeing not what would befall her

In the faraway years so close

Smile, laugh, jump

 

For the girl

Who asked only for an apple

And got the whole tree

Hoped for an ember

And got a blaze

Stay strong, stay hopeful, stay

 

For the child

Who would learn what powers she had

To hurt without touching

To know without seeing

To scream without breathing

To die without living

Little can I offer

But hope
