My sunshine girl

By Sondra Williams

She comes with a beauty rarely understood by man She is sweet and so loving as she takes my hand This sunshine girl is perfect in my eyes Provoked from innocence, as she cries

The world is a confusing place with expectations she does not know She tries to blend, but her confusions rushes in with unwelcome show Protesting loudly from her fears not understanding its impact on others Needing most the comfort of loving arms, only expressed by mothers

She wants to be a part of things, but lacks in the knowing of how it works Shouting out her thinking in loud forbidden behavioral quirks She does not do this with intent to cause others to be upset She does it for reasons that she cannot tell with verbal mindset

My little sunshine girl is but only eight in years Yet parts of her are not well developed and bring shattered tears Her mind is racing with playful thoughts and often is entertained Yet is forced to leave it all behind, Lost in the play of life's challenging games

She pleads for support and yet wants her independence, frustrated by the out come
She shouts and screams as she knows she is different, but pretends she is like some
She is not aware of her beauty, and gifts she brings to me I wish I could show her in the magical mirror the images others see

My sunshine girl is bright and creative, and daces to a different tune Yet in time others will see her humanness, reaching for the moon.

They will see my sunshine girl glimmering brightly, as a star shining in the sky
I love this little girl, for who she is, as she is sadly waving her innocence good bye

To me she is of great strength and beauty to behold She doesn't fit among the others, as she has no caste or mold She is beautifully defiant which is her strength to preserve her dignity Yet among this child, I see reflections identical to me.

"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
