Her

Strange.

And a little bit crazy.

She has an opinion about everything, but

is never intruding.

Knows what she wants, and doesn’t wait

around for anybody to give it to her.

 

She is a sometimes serious and other times

naïve like a kid.

She may be cheeky, but is never arrogant.

Mostly confident, but never self-absorbed.

Always carries a heavy bag,

Because she always has a book or two

accompanying her.

Pretentious, but only towards herself.

And Humble.

Very down to earth, just not this Earth.

 

This is her.

This will always be her.

Somewhere over there,

that is her.
