Run, run little girl

Run, run little girl


Run, run little girl

Run wild and free

Down the mountain sides

Through valleys and hills


Run, run little girl

Away from hurt feelings

And playmates who name call and smear

Run dear girl to your mother’s safe arms.


Run, run little girl

To womanhoods thin veil

To crushes, emotions and sleepovers

Run to the fun of those teenage years


Run, run little girl

To the driver’s license at last

And long coveted freedoms pass

Run to adventure – toss caution aside.


Run, Run little girl

To the boys and the booze

To heart breaks and heartaches

From boy to boy, insecurity and gloom.


Run, run little girl

To the arms of your lover

The perfect match – Head over heals

Not a thing can go wrong.


Run, run little girl

To your pillow soft comfort

The man of your dreams?

Now the one you despise


Run, run little girl

Down the hall – catch your daughter

Giggling delight – she fills you with terror

Your precious mirror of your life


Run, run little girl

Look into the eyes of your sleeping child

You’ve run your whole life

From yourself – nothing else


Run run little girl

To yourself

To the place in your heart

You don’t want to face

The place you’ll see you

Who you really are

Keep your eyes open

Don’t cower in fear

It’s not pretty – oh no

But it’s the truth about you

Stop running from you

Face the little girl in your soul

Hear her fears – they are real

See her heart – beating true

Feel her tears – finally free


Run, run little girl

To your Dad’s open arms

Settle in. Grab a book. Get some tea.

You’ve been gone for too long.





About Michelle

I'm Michelle. I'm an extrovert city girl who grew up in the beautiful farm country of the East Coast and moved to Houston Texas 6 years ago. Stepping out, being known and letting myself be seen are some of the scariest and most frightening things I’ve done and that's what my blog is about. View all posts by Michelle
