a Spanish dictionary
a scientific calculator
the lord of the flies
a script and a bottle of raspberry lemonade
weaknesses of her parents
a couple bags of candy and a baby name book
choices she shouldn't have to make
a letter pin, a bouncy ball
un unplayed keyboard sets with
a scrabble board
as music fills the background
a life of paradoxes,
choices made without being chosen
as daddy's little girl grows into
the teen that does everything
the woman who raises her.
