Did you see the little girl reaching for her bright future? She ran fast and tried so hard. She was just beginning.

Could you see how she jumped over the obstacles, How she watched sharply, like an eagle, to find her way?

Did you see how smart she was, how she bounded over hills? I saw in her eyes the dreams she wanted to fulfill.

She was swift, ran fast and heroically. She wanted to reach the stars.

I saw the same little girl, coming down the walk, Tired and defeated. She wanted to scream and talk.

A lion blocked her way, and she was scared, Turned back, in despair.

She promises herself now that she will run again, That she won’t be scared by lions and bad men.
