I smile brightly for the world to see

So they can know how great I have lived

Knowing I do not grieve about what I did

With no pain, no hate willing to give


Hoping someday I live for something great

Finding ways to be a better human

I know that I can't do things like a man

For I am a girl soon to be a women


Trying to find who and what I am

Clueless and stuck in this timeless present

Giving all I could and can be 

But I am and I am not some peasant


For now, I laugh and smile

Waiting for time to slowly move as I walk a mile
