Her voice is soft like a songbird's first "good morning",
vibrato's as words pour into her leather bound fortress,
becomes a warrior, a missionary - maybe a bit of both;
a vortex of youth, passion, possibilities -
becomes a full bodied soprano reaching for high A
no longer penning curly cues and girlish giggles
but brandishing flourishes as bold and strong
as ambition dares reach...
and she dares.
