No Ordinary Girl


Her dreams they come in color like movie reels on a screen

She remembers every moment of magic she has ever seen

She is no ordinary girl

Most days her hands are covered in mud from playing with bugs and worms

She’s really not too worried about girlie things like getting sick and germs

It’s not that she’s untidy she usually starts out clean

She never dreams of being a princess

Because she knows she will be queen

She dreams of catching fire flies in the dead of night

She wants to hold one in the palm of her hand to use it as a light

Sometimes she gets up very early before everyone is awake

Just to watch the sun rise up and the colors that it makes

She doesn’t think that she’s beautiful but it glows beneath her skin

The woman one day she will become

Shines like that sunrise within
