A little girl walks
down a gravel path.
Uniformed trees line up
on her left and right.
She walks away from a gate,
a gate leading her to a world of pure imagination
Her eyes are closed,
but full of stars and galaxies
Three silver balloons float from each wrist,
seemingly lifting her off the ground and to the skies.
Each silver balloon reflects a different
world that the girl has yet to explore.
She dons an astronaut's costume,
hoping one day it will be official.
She dreams of flying to the moon,
zipping through the cosmos,
exploring new worlds,
and discovering new life.
A little girl walks down a gravel path
with her eyes closed leading her to a life not yet lived.
