SOMETIMES I AM HER
Updated: Feb 1, 2022
Sometimes I am a little girl,
Who wishes herself the playful love, the playful memories she deserves to look back when she becomes a teenage girl.
Sometimes I am a teenage girl,
Who wishes herself a beautiful body and the confidence to accept the flaws when she becomes a woman.
Sometimes I am a friend,
Who wishes she gives all of her for the friendship she has but always keeps herself first, so she knows her value when she becomes a woman.
Sometimes I am a grown-up woman,
Who wishes herself the power to handle the criticism and the courage to become a beautiful lady.
Sometimes I am a lady,
Who wishes herself that she knows how to respect herself before deserving a man of her dreams and turning into a soulmate, a wife.
Sometimes I am a wife,
She wishes herself that she knows and respects that she has an individual life so she decides for herself before turning into a mother.
Sometimes I am a mother,
She wishes herself to be the best teacher her children could have in this world, so she knows that she is going to be a good grandmother.
Sometimes I am a grandmother,
Who wishes to complete her dreams she left behind for some reasons so that when she leaves the world she'll be known to have lived wholly.
