A Wish

I wish I was,
A girl,
Young, carefree, 
Hardy,
No responsibilities;
Seamless horizons,
Running wild,
Getting knocked down,
Chasing again,
Careless & carefree,
Wanton, 
Gay abandonment,
Laissez faire,*
I wish I was
Still.... A girl

****

Compassionate,
Ruffian,
Ignorant, naive,
Yet cautious;
A little haughty,
Headstrong,
Carte blanche,**
Unrestrained indulgence,
I wish I was
Still.... A girl

****

Doting mother, 
Lover, wife,
Considerate companion,
Daughter, sister;
Responsibility,
Restraint and liability,
Are now a part of my
Identity... Always
Striving for perfection;
Passion my stimulus,
Love and obeisance
my reward.
Ahh...! I wish
I was
Still.... A girl
