I Just Want To Be A Little Girl: A Poem

June 9, 2014 | By

Be lively or a lazy girl
I just want to be a little girl.


I just want to be a little girl

Woman is great, I know!
Woman is strong, I know!
She loves and cares, I know!
She’s soft and kind, I know!

But I don’t want to be a woman anymore,
I just want to be a little girl!

To jump and play in the rain,
To cycle on the streets again,
To sleep if I wish till noon,
And wake only to watch cartoon,

No worries, no duties, no care,
No responsibilities to share.
Playing with dolls or broken toys,
Running around or hitting the boys,

Food served whenever I want,
No scary future worries to haunt,
Be a lively or a lazy girl
I just want to be a little girl.
