She asked for the stars

She was a little girl
A child in a woman
With big dreams
She asked for stars
When told no
She asked the sky
Still too far they said
She accepted less
In their hands
Her dreams shrunk
She gave it all up
Let their dreams
Become hers too
Accepting it all
But even then
Hands that gave
Snatched it back

She just wanted
To be a little girl
Dreaming of stars
Building castles
Watching sunrises
Reading poetry
Silence to engulf
Calmness to reside
After all, a woman
But a girl within
