Deep dark brown eyes, with long light black hair
Shy, clumsy, and stubborn
Sister of the boy chaser
Daughter of Mr. Music
Who loves spending a burning summer day in the pool with all her friends, reading like there is no tomorrow, and eating candy like its Halloween
Who fears of getting lost without a map, of being left on her own without a shoulder to lean on, and being attacked by a wild animal
Who wishes terrorism would end, peace could be found in the wildest situations, and that naps were in her afternoon classes
Who creates smiles on the faces around her, silly dances to entertain, and her serves to score a point every game
Who wonders what the depths of the ocean are keeping secret, how people can be so mean, and if Antarctica will really melt
Who dreams of lying in a hammock on the beach, a candy mountain, and life with a driver’s license
Who remembers vacation in Playa de Carma, Neewollah in Independence, and sleeping in on all those long summer days
Who believes good can be found in everybody, that all you need to have fun are your friends, and that life won’t end when you die it just starts again
