woman in a girl's body

Eyes of an intelligent blue stare back
from a forgotten polaroid,
a candid expression of coy and innocence
captured in her half smile.
To know the joys of freedom
and the sorrow of love
a burden with no hope of grace
in the lines of her hands.
The woman in her mind tasked
with the care of the child
in her heart.
