The Way She Grew Wise: a series of haikus

The perfect firstborn
Well taught and followed the rules
Daddy's pride and joy
 
She respects adults
And feel an pressure to uphold
The good girl image
 
Little do they know
Deep down inside she has found
Clarity and truth
 
The way to grow wise
You mustn't follow the rules
But live, and love, and loose.
