"Be a girl with a mind, a woman with attitude, and a lady with class." ~Unknown


I remember
the magical
p
u
f

f
of a dandelion;
how I wished for
petty things
like
that new dress...
or a new doll, maybe...
or that I, too,
could be a
princess
someday.

Now, I simply
watch
other little ones and
think
to myself
that they are just
wasting
wishes,
fragments
of
childhood
blown away
and
spent thoughtlessly.

If I had
just
one
wish,
I would want
to be the responsible
one
and do something
about this
hellish
world
we live in.

What would you choose?
