I Lived Once
Life in my skin…
Can there be a compendium of it?
If I’d attempt it a bit
It’d be this; I lived once.
Yea! I lived, I laughed,
I fussed, I cried,
I mused, I wrote,
I lived every moment as my own.
Though coming of age hasn’t been easy,
with lines and scripts for the adult world.
This engaged will doubtless falter,
…little Missy in transit to adult.
Yet, in all of this I find peace;
I can forgive,
I can be stilled,
I do not at all lose my heart.
