Never Grow Up

Body
I am, have always been, and will always be, a little kid at heart. I enjoy the simple things in life and can find happiness in even the most mundane situations. I am creative and artsy, I enjoy writing poetry, composing music, and crafting with my friends. I love going through the fancy automatic car washes just to see the pretty soap on all the windows. I get excited every time my favorite song comes on the radio and I belt out the lyrics at the top of my lungs (even if I sound like a dying banshee when I do.) I march to the beat of my own drum. I enjoy being myself, no matter who is watching or listening. I live my life to please one person, young me. I look back at my childhood self and live my life in a way that would make her proud of who she grew up to be.
