To the little person inside me

There is a little person 

Sleeping inside me

Whaaaaaaat?

It’s not what you think hahaha

It’s the child within

That longs to be a giant

It’s the volcano that has long been dormant

It’s the flickering flame

Waiting to be stoked

It’s the laughter that got caught

In one’s throat

The years fly

Time goes by

The little person dies a little bit inside

She’s no fairy tale princess

Who needs true love’s kiss

Because the spell she’s under 

Can’t be broken by a lover 

She has to listen closely to the voice

inside her

Though it may be softer 

than a whisper

Saying 

“Wake up…

Open your eyes and see

It is not too late 

To be all that you want 

and everything you’re meant to be”
