"When I was a Child"

When I was a child,
I played with my toys
each and every day.
But then came a day when I realized
It was time to put all childish things away.

I had risen with the risen sun
When my mother came to me
To say, “My child, it is time
To let you be.”

Imagine my shock
When I found out
That my life would be taking
A perilous route.

As a child, I smiled and danced,
And was so carefree!
But as a young woman, I struggle
Oh, woe is me!

Don’t get me wrong;
My struggle is my prize.
And if you don’t believe me
Look into my eyes.

And you’ll see a young woman
Who is waiting to be
On top in this world
Just by being me.
