I love the zigzag parts in the middle of your head with your colorful hair bows. Your innocence is only temporary because the world will attempt to speed up your maturity by making your zig-zag parts straight. Worry less about what people think and marinate yourself in your talents, your education, and most of all, your beauty. Try hard not to take the mapped-out directions for your life, but rather, take chances, make mistakes, and follow your path. Listen to the beat of your drums, whether offbeat or a perfectly played melody. There will be storms, some brutal, leaving behind dirt and pain residue. But, little girl, everything will pass with time, even you, so live with purpose because none of us will make it out of life alive.
