Girls

15 Apr

If, in young friendship,

a promise is born

of hope and wishes

only and remains

unkept, then whose

heart breaks more?

The girl waiting

for the promise to be

fulfilled, or the girl

unable to fulfill it?

And if each girl

understands

the other,

and they

move on,

stronger together

for what they know,

are they really

as young as

we, the adults,

might believe?
