No Ordinary Girl

No Ordinary Girl By Kim Cormack 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
