It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~e.e. cummings

The little girl dozes
In a field of stained roses
Silent and still
As if someone had already gotten to the kill

I've read most of your pieces and they're all very good. But this is the best one so far! It's so foreboding and yet calming to read. I loved your rhyme pattern as well. Keep it up and you'll be famous soon! (If not I'll make you famous;) I've MEMORIZED this piece.
