In the Glass House

August 20, 2011
She pressed her nose against the walls of the glass house.
behaving boldly as only a child would.
Dazing far off into the distance,
seeing past pretense as only a child could.
Too quick to join the resistance,
ignorant of consequence as only infants were.
Of her own omniscience was she sure,
and then she grew.
her days in the glass house were through.

The poet shows a subtle sensitivity while portraying up the growth of an individual, not just a child. Love the poem.
