She is emerging
She has tried many times
only to be drowned out by the bullies.
She has something to say, this one.
She sees right through all the hypocrisy
to the core–the essence.
She has no tolerance for the pretending
that goes on and on and on
it makes her feel scared and very alone.
This shimmering, vulnerable (yet strong) child
is coming back
in full force.
She will not be shushed.
She will not be ignored.
She WILL be cared for, heard, seen and honored.
Above all, she is loved.
