I danced and sang and ran as a child,
Simple and easily beguiled!
My daddy's little girl,
Happy with just a candy swirl!
Then I was in school,
Here all went by the rule.
I no longer knew what I could do,
But intellectually I grew!
I am now a daughter,aunt and a sister
Soon going to be an alma mater!
Time flew so swift,
Yet giving me the healing gift.
I have changed a lot since school,
I am sometimes an emotional fool.
Sometimes hard as a rock,
But I still miss my frock.
I am a child at heart .
Still wishing life had a button of restart.
I learnt from disappointment and rejection,
That it was the only way to perfection!
I was told to change,
I tried,but that felt strange.
I am who I am and want to be,
My imagination, heart and will as mighty as a sea!
My identity is still a point of debate.
For I am low on my life's au fait!
