When I Grow Up (a poem)

When I grow up I’ll be
Pristine, honest
Eager, helpful
Holistic, and non-judgmental.

When I grow up I will wear
Red cabbage roses, velvet dresses,
ruffle socks, linen trousers,
and a smile when I dance.

When I grow up I will feel
Confident, worldly,
learned, pretty,
loved, and humble.

When I grow up I’ll live in
a gingerbread house, an inlet by the sea,
a nook in a forest tree, a ch√Ęteau in the Alps,
a tulip lined cottage, or under a magic toadstool.

When I grow up I’ll own
a cut glass bracelet, a blue unicorn,
two Chinese fans, a white picket fence,
five yards of pale pink ribbon, and me.
