She and her thoughts alone

She sits with her and her thoughts alone 

It's not safe she knows 

But she can't help but realize how much she's grown 

She's no longer a saddened little girl 

But now a beautiful young woman 

Ready to give life a whirl 

She thinks now of how she'll face the world as something new

She'll spread her wings and fly because it's something she's always needed to do 

Out on her own and ready to explore 

Because she knows there's always gonna be something more

She is now ready to take the world by storm 

It is then she realizes 

She and her thoughts alone

can be a safe place

because she can make the world her own.

    The world awaits her, go forward into that world with love and joy.
