you are her.
remember that woman you always wanted to become?
the one that you’d picture in the mirror, when everything was said and done?
you swore up and down that things would change
your job, your smile, the clothes you wore and even the bangs
sitting in school, you’d daydream about the life you wanted to have
you were so lost in those thoughts, that you completely missed all of what you already had
desperately wishing for more will only focus on what you lack
you must realize that everything you want already lies within you and in your backpack
your passions, your skills, your kindness and heart
use all of this to create all of the beautiful art
you are such an amazing human with so much in store
i swear all around that you are the farthest from a bore
your eyes tell a story others cannot hear
your fingers crave to create magic, but you may have fear
for what the rest of the world may think of you
“someday, i will take charge and do what i want to do”
you sigh loudly and look around
i wish i could tell you that you are already so damn profound
you were her then; you are her now
you were always this woman, you just have to allow
for the growth to consume you
the inspiration and dedication to capture you
don’t worry, darling
you are her.
