I Wish

This is a poem I wrote for a scholarship application recently. Just wanted to share it.

Chapter 1

I Wish

I wish
You all could see
The small girl behind the facade.

Behind the facade
That does nothing but show off
And try to prove to everyone that she is a woman.

When really
Behind the facade,
The small girl is doing nothing but
Singing.

Singing in the house
Singing by the river
Singing by the tree.

She sings because
That's all she knows.
And because that is all she knows
She knows that she is still a girl.

But still she tries
Tries to fill the shoes of a woman,
Those three-inch high heels that seem to be an added necessity
To growing up.

She sings
Because that is what she loves
Even though she knows
It won't be enough to succeed.

But she hopes
And hopes
That maybe one day, it will.

That maybe one day,
It will be enough and she can
Rejoice and sing the day away.

But until that day,
She continues to pretend,
Uses her facade to prove
That she is a woman, that she is

Successful.

I wish you all could see
This girl singing
Before she gives up.
Before she grows up.

I wish you all could see the way
This girl is singing
Her hopes and her dreams
To sleep.
