A look at me as a kid.

What a strange little girl I was,

staring at the ocean all day.

What an odd one I was,

perferring to stand there than play.

How bizzare I must have looked to those passing by.

If only they knew that I was planning to fly.

For my wings can't be seen to anyone but me.

The only thing they saw, was my need to be free.

I had no intrest in dolls and toys.

I had no urge to play with other girls and boys.

"What a strange little girl." People would said, "What a strange little girl staring at the ocean all day."

To be in our own world of dreams and fantasy can be fun at times. A nice poem about your vision to fly. Well written

Loved this one as well. Reminds me of me when I was younger. Always in dream land fighting dragons and trolls. The imagery and flow are great.
Loved it.
